‘Cork Person of the Year’ Awards Organiser, Manus O’Callaghan, paid tribute to the founders of I Wish as they were named March ‘Cork Persons of the Month’. “I’m delighted to announce that Ruth, Gillian and Caroline have been acknowledged for their vision in setting up the I Wish initiative and their dedication to encouraging young female students to consider a career in a STEM. Despite having extremely demanding careers themselves, these three business leaders and social entrepreneurs are committed to shaping and nurturing the next generation of highly educated, highly motivated, young women.”
Ruth Buckley, Head of ICT & Business Services, Cork City Council, Gillian Keating, Partner Ronan Daly Jermyn, and Caroline O’Driscoll, Partner at KPMG, will join this year’s other monthly award winners for possible selection as overall ‘Cork Person of the Year 2017’. The winner will be announced at a Gala Awards Lunch due to take place in January 2018.
We here at I Wish are very proud to receive this award.
