From year group reunions and the Old Girls’ Lax Match to online SHSK Society Talks and our established series of Professional Networking Events, we are pleased to offer a varied and growing programme of alumnae events.
Professional Networking Events were launched in 2017 to support Old Girls by providing the chance to meet like-minded women working in the same sector. Networking events have seen alumnae bouncing ideas off one another and forging professional and social links. Our aim is that by strengthening these connections, we can share knowledge and ideas to achieve more, faster, and together.
Visit www.shsksociety.org.uk/events to read the latest events news from the Alumnae Office.
Keeping our global alumnae community connected, SHSK Society Talks are online events providing expert insights and personal stories on a range of topics of shared interest. Talks in the series so far include:
'A long cultural history of the fight for racial justice' with Catherine Armstrong, Senior Lecturer in American History at Loughborough University
'Maths meets medicine: how data and statistics play a crucial role in public health' with Eleanor Barry, final year PhD student at the University of Bath
'Life as a junior doctor in 2020' with Lydia Akinola, Obstretics and Gynaecology junior doctor
'Entrepreneurship and running your own business' with Mary Bateman (Co-Founder and Chief Creator, Twisting Spirits), Alison Hargreaves (Founder and MD, Guides for Brides) and Naomi Ryland (Co-Founder and MD, tbd*)
''From broadcasts to podcasts' with Natalie Jamieson, award winning popular culture journalist.
''Disrupt your career' with Claire Harbour, author and careers coach.
'Working to limit the effects of war' with Sarah Grey, Delegate of the ICRC
Recordings of the talks are available for alumnae to view here.

Join us for our SHSK Society Talk in April with Old Girl Sophie Hackford.
Sophie will talk about making a career out of imagining the future. Travelling to Seoul, Saudi Arabia, Helsinki, Arizona, giving talks to executives about AI, avatars, supercomputing, gene sequencing, the private space industry (and inevitably asked about whether/when there will be a robot apocalypse). She will tell us how her career came about, and where it might be heading.
