As a founding member of The Glasgow University society S.W. A.G,(Successful Women At Glasgow). The aim of the society is to promote, encourage and inspire student members, aiding them in their career paths by organising a series of women speakers from across a broad range of professional fields. In our founding year(2014-15) we have successfully booked and hosted an array of incredible women speakers, including; Mandy Rhodes, Lorna Hood, Dame Jocelyn Bell Brunel, Dame Linda Urquhart, Nicola Sturgeon, Ruth Davidson and Sarah McCrory. In our first year we also gained a following of over one thousand followers. As convener of the society was responsible for dealing with all aspects of booking and liaison with the speakers, email correspondence and promotion in the run up to each event. S.W. A.G has faced challenges in establishing itself on campus as a newly found society, it has required efficient, communicative, and open minded team work within a committee of six.
