This Girl Can – 101 Ways Intern Talks Getting Women into STEM

Araminta Bos-Rich is a Bath native, horse lover (she has one that at 26 years, is older than her) and was one of 101 Ways’ summer interns. Although she had to leave to go back to university, we didn’t really want to let her go because she brought us doughnuts, was really helpful to the […]

Conversations with the Crew: Meet Heidi Anderson

Thus far, our three-strong Client Partner Team was made up of people who’s names begin with a ‘J’. While always a fan of alliteration, it was time to mix it up and add the inimitable Heidi Anderson to the mix. A London native, Heidi and her family packed their bags four years ago, made for […]
