Reaching Out for Future Talent
29 October 2014
WISE’s first ever corporate member, Rolls-Royce PLC, hosted a Knowledge Sharing Event at their Derby centre on October 29 2014. The event included a fascinating tour of the on-site museum with Rolls-Royce exhibits presenting a wealth of history about the company, and insight into their current diversity and inclusion programmes. Rolls Royce apprentices and graduates talked about these programmes and how they benefited from the activities.
The event focused on the issue of how to attract the best talent and attendees had the opportunity to share ideas about the most successful ways of attracting future talent.
Well attended by WISE members and the WISE team, many of the attendees also went on to visit the Graduate Engineer & Science Show at the nearby Derby Roundhouse.
WISE ran discovery workshops for girls at the Graduate Engineer & Science Show and jointly presented with Jaguar Land Rover the 2014 Range Rover Evoque WISE Scholarship winners with their prizes.
