International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day – 8 March 2021

Monday 8 March is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality.

We are lucky to be able to celebrate so many inspirational females every day at Heriot’s. Today we show our appreciation to our female members of staff, pupils and those in the wider Heriot’s community.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we caught up with Kyra Ferguson-Wardle (Class of 2011) who is a Chartered Civil Engineer working within the ever-evolving railway industry. As a predominately male-dominated industry, Kyra is showing true ‘girl power’ in her role. You can read more on the After Heriot’s blog. 

Eilidh Robb (Class of 2013) left Heriot’s to study Geography and now works in Brussels for an Environmental NGO and volunteers with many activism groups on Climate justice. Eilidh has been featured in the special edition ‘The Young Geographer – The Climate Justice Edition’ for International Women’s Day, a magazine that is edited by an all female team. Well done, Eilidh!
