Headmaster's Lecture: In Conversation with Sarah Jenkins

We were delighted to hold our inaugural Headmaster's Lecture on Wednesday 17 March.

Sarah is Managing Director of Saatchi & Saatchi London, shaping the strategic direction of the agency. She is a passionate advocate for greater diversity in the advertising industry; and has been instrumental in work of the Advertising Diversity Task Force, which encourages collaboration between forward-thinking and progressive agencies to make the communication industry more diverse.

Sarah showed such openness and integrity, and we have had incredibly positive feedback from the girls, parents, ORs, Roedean Academy students from local schools.

‘We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the Headmaster’s Lecture yesterday evening. It was so fascinating to hear Sarah Jenkins speak and share her experiences of working in the advertising industry. We really loved how she put such an emphasis on kindness. It was also clear how impressed she was with the Roedean girls and their very insightful questions. She really is a fantastic role model and an amazing woman.’ Year 10 Parents

‘When I found out that Sarah Jenkins would be the first speaker at the launch of Roedean’s new Headmaster’s Lecture series,  I anticipated a fascinating evening. However, I could never have imagined just how inspiring and down-to-earth Sarah would be. She spoke to us about important matters, such as diversity in the workplace, as well as how to deal with salary negotiations and imposter syndrome as women, in a prejudiced world. We were incredibly fortunate to have Sarah with us for a Q and A session too, which meant that we had the opportunity to quiz her on her top tips and experiences. Her achievements, kindness, and words of wisdom, made her a role model to so many of us, who were lucky enough to see her speak on Wednesday evening. Thank you so much to Sarah Jenkins and all the organisers of the event. This looks like the beginning of a truly fantastic programme!’ Eden (Yr13)

It was a wonderful evening, and we are delighted that Sarah really enoyed it too -  ‘It was honestly an absolute pleasure. Some incredibly smart questions too, you obviously have a very intelligent cohort of young women about to enter adulthood and make the world a better place.’

Sarah's lecture was the first in a series of termly lectures. These lectures will be an opportunity for our whole community to join together to celebrate a strong female role model, and tickets will be open to ORs, current and former staff, current and former parents and students.
