Gillian Keating – I Wish Co- Founder
Partner Ronan Daly Jermyn
Gillian Keating leads Ronan Daly Jermyn’s Corporate and Commercial Department and the firm’s Technology and Life Sciences Groups.
Gillian is a Co-Founder of I Wish and is passionate about the next generation of young females and is very focussed on how we as a society need to fully enable young women to participate in the economy of the future.
Gillian believes we need to focus on understanding how we consciously and unconsciously limit young women and how best to remove those limitations as a matter of urgency, while at the same time we need to listen to what the next generation of women tell us is important to them choosing subjects, higher education courses and careers and showcase the opportunities in STEM.
I Wish Co-Founder, Partner, Deloitte
Caroline O’ Driscoll – I Wish Co- Founder
Corporate and international tax partner of Deloitte Caroline provides corporate and international tax advice to Tech companies particularly on inward and outward.
Caroline is Co-Founder of I Wish. Caroline says she looks to the girls who attend I Wish as they really inspire her to keep going on what has been a mad but amazing journey. She feels a huge sense of responsibility to enable every girl to live their brightest lives.
Caroline embarked on the I Wish journey with Gillian and Ruth because she could see the opportunity in STEM, but with less than 25% of the STEM workforce in Ireland being women she realised that there was a risk that her own daughter would not participate in the jobs of tomorrow, all she wants for her is equal opportunity of choice.
