STEM Lecture with Dr Becky White

A pharmacist delivered an engaging talk on her life and career in the first STEM lecture of the year.

Dr Becky White gave a highly-engaging account of her work in the pharmaceutical industry, covering her career path and sharing valuable insights into the profession for GCSE and A Level students.

Valuable advice on topics such as subject combinations, degree course requirements, earning potential and opportunities in research and management gave a clear view into the world of work. During a Q & A session post-talk, Dr White answered questions on a wide range of topics including drug regulations, careers overseas, ethical practice in multinational companies, work-life balance of professionals and how the pharmaceutical sector works alongside other medical teams and the public.

Mr Jason Morris, Head of Science at Headington School said: “The new Hive lecture theatre was the perfect venue for our senior school audience attending the first external guest speaker of the term. The Science Ambassadors and the School would like to thank Dr White for this inspiring talk.”
