I-Wish founders Caroline O’Driscoll (Deloitte), Gillian Keating (RDJ Solicitors) and Ruth Buckley (Cork City Council), at the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland Cairdeas Award for their work encouraging and motivating young female students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
The word ‘Cairdeas’ means friendship in Irish. This award will be presented to an individual or organisation from the not-for-profit-sector in the region which has strongly demonstrated community impact.
The American Chamber of Commerce Ireland hosted a dinner at the Maryborough hotel where over 350 of its Munster members heard from Vice Admiral Mark Mellett, Chief of Staff for the Irish Defence Forces.
