Inspiring the Next Generation
On Wednesday 29 April, 2015, Abigail Humphreys and Alex Stewart-Long represented Stephen George & Partners LLP at Pipers Corner School’s Careers Fair in Buckinghamshire.
Using their experience of studying and working in practice, Abigail and Alex had the chance to talk to girls about a career in architecture, challenging the perception of a male-dominated profession. They used their very popular stall to showcase some of the practice’s range of work and discuss the details of the university course, as well as what to expect when getting into the workplace.
Abigail and Alex were keen to inspire the girls, and the myth that students “have to be a genius at maths and physics to be an architect” was quickly dispelled! The evening was very successful and some of the girls were really excited to learn more about the potential of becoming an architect.
