TOP businesswomen from across the UK will visit the University of Chichester this week to encourage young women to become the country’s next high-fliers.

Senior female leaders from global businesses and brands, including Deloitte and Accenture, will speak to more than 150 West Sussex and Hampshire pupils on Wednesday at the university’s Enterprising Women Conference.

Deputy vice-chancellor, Sarah Gilroy, who will open the conference, said: ‘This is a great chance to inspire a new generation of young women by encouraging them to consider careers they may never have thought of before.

‘There is a broad spectrum of leading businesswomen, each working within the highest levels of their organisations, who will be speaking at the event.

‘This is an ideal opportunity for the students, who are all aged between 14 and 16 years old, to meet with them and learn from their experiences in the workplace.’
