Trust Clinical Psychologist Dr Astrid Schepers (pictured fifth from left) joined famous faces, actress Gillian Anderson and celebrity Ruby Wax as a role model and mentor for school girls at Southbank Women of the World (WOW) Festival this month at the London Eye.

The special mentoring day, aimed at girls aged 13-18, was part of the International Day of the Girl, started by the United Nations. The WOW festival was founded by Jude Kelly CBE in 2010 and aims to promote equality between genders. London's next WOW festival will be celebrated on International Women's Day in March 2019.

Dr Astrid Schepers explains: “The WOW Foundation aims for gender equality world-wide through positive change, education, networking and celebration. Jude Kelly is a personal hero of mine. I really recommend to visit the London WOW festival and meet her in person.”
