The Countess of Wessex visits the next generation of young professionals and their mentors at The Duke of Edinburgh Award's Women’s Network Forum event at the London Stock Exchange.

The Countess is Chair of the Duke of Edinburgh Women’s Network Forum, which she founded in 2014.

The forum brings together a cross-industry group of senior representatives from a variety of organisations and businesses to champion and promote gender balance and equality in the workplace.

At the event, girls from secondary schools across London shared their career aspirations with The Countess, female professionals and young adult mentors, who shared some of their own professional experiences and offered guidance to inspire the next generation of women.
