As the world marks International Women's Day, Shaw Education Trust proudly joins the global celebration showcasing the remarkable achievements of women everywhere. On this special occasion, we pause to reflect on the exceptional women who inspire us with their courage, resilience, and determination.


Meet Reece our Senior IT Technician,

"I am deeply inspired by my mother and grandmother, who have always pushed me forward with their strength and resilience. Their guidance and support have played a crucial role in shaping the person I am today, and I believe that it's a testament to the power of women's influence." 






Meet Clare our Executive Assistant,

"It's essential for us to pause and reflect on the strides we've made towards gender equality. I truly believe that our workplace at SET provides a fantastic environment to celebrate this day, surrounded by so many inspiring women. One of my greatest inspirations is Justine Arden the former politician who served as the 40th prime minister of New Zealand. Her leadership and determination serve as a guiding light for me and countless others."





Meet Shay, Our Institute Of Education Administrator,

"Watching my mother balance the responsibilities of caring for me and my brother while pursuing her education at university left a lasting impression. My mother's determination and strength became a source of inspiration, motivating me to carve my own path with dedication. Despite the challenges my mum has faced, she has built her career from the ground up, never once complaining. Her story is a testament to the power of resilience and the profound impact of a strong role model."
