I took part in the Speed Mentoring Event for International Day of the Girl at the South Bank Centre on 11 October 2012. Women from all sectors convened to meet and mentor girls from schools all over London. I came as a mentor and left an advocate. Here is my blog post about the day http://www.candygourlay.com/2012/10/international-day-of-girl.html
