Speakers: Frances Scott – Founder of 50:50 Parliament and Tripti Maheshwari - Founder Student Circus
Frances Scott founded 50:50 Parliament in 2013, being a passionate advocate for better gender balance in Parliament. She has campaigned hard to address this issue from organising events to providing submissions to select committees. When speaking for 50:50 in Canterbury she inspired Rosie Duffield to stand. Rosie then went on to be one of the 12 extra women elected to Parliament in 2017. This was the start of 50:50’s Ask Her To Stand campaign to encourage women along the pathway to Parliament.
Frances is an antenatal teacher with the NCT and has helped support thousands of parents through pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. She has sat on the Maternity Services Action Committee at St Mary’s Hospital.
Prior to having a family she had an international career in the hotel and tourism industry. She was involved in conducting economic, marketing and operations analysis throughout Europe and Asia. She was the first woman to be appointed to several of the roles she held in business.
Tripti Maheshwari founded Student Circus after graduation from Lancaster University in 2014 and gaining an MSc Finance from Cass Business School in 2015. She set up the search platform for international students in the UK to find Tier-2 employers willing to hire graduates. It is now used by 100+ universities which helps thousands of students based on skills and not the colour of passports!
