Ghana: Standard Chartered staff celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science with mentoring programme

Standard Chartered staff participated in a volunteering activity, conducting a speed mentoring session with 100 female students from Labone and Accra High Senior High Schools. The session was held as part of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, aligned with the global theme “Women and Girls in Science Leadership, a New Era for Sustainability.”

The United Nations established the International Day of Women and Girls in Science to acknowledge the crucial role women and girls play in science and technology. Standard Chartered takes pride in celebrating their achievements and fostering an enabling environment for women and girl scientists to excel.

The volunteering activity aligns with Futuremakers by Standard Chartered, the bank’s global youth economic empowerment initiative aimed at supporting disadvantaged young people, especially women and individuals with disabilities, to learn, earn, and grow.

The session’s highlight was a STEM competition involving two girl teams from Accra High School and Labone Secondary School. Their challenge was to create a digital solution for managing, tracking, and saving for teenagers, aimed at fostering interest in STEM careers among young girls in senior high schools in Ghana. Labone Senior High School emerged as the competition winners and received a Smart TV for the school’s ICT laboratory.
