Women inspiring girls, in sport and business
27 Oct 2023
How can we help the next generation of girls set and achieve their goals? Often, by showing them what other women have achieved, and sharing the expertise they developed on the way.
This autumn, championship winning golfer Kylie Henry shared her expertise with young golfers at a Girls Golf Day at Castle Buchanan, near Glasgow. And one of the women who opened the sport to today's professionals—record-breaking amateur legend Belle Robertson—joined the day, adding another link to the chain of women inspiring women.
The girls at the event—organised with the help of the Paul Lawrie Foundation—learned from the best, as they worked to build their sporting skills. With them were four inspirational female leaders from Fugro, who joined them on the fairway and shared how they had succeeded in another male-dominated space.
