The Laidlaw Foundation's visit to Trinity was a great opportunity to bring together the many staff and students who contribute to our Laidlaw community. 

Our opening presentations and lunch session included an overview of Laidlaw at Trinity from programme coordinator Joel McKeever, followed by several personal experiences of leadership-in-action projects from students planning their excursions as well as those who had recently completed them. Our students are working to add real and meaningful value to efforts across the world, including Ireland, Uganda, Fiji, Zimbabwe, Switzerland, the US, the UK, and more. 

We also had the wonderful opportunity to introduce our then very recently selected 2023 Scholars who got a first-hand look at the breadth and variety of activity across the Network. The afternoon included a session with the Provost & President of Trinity, Prof. Linda Doyle alongside our newest Laidlaw Programme, the Trinity Access - Women in Business students. Lastly, we were joined by Niall Santamaria from Laidlaw Scholars Ventures with students across the cohorts packed in to hear about the exciting opportunities available for Scholar entrepreneurs. 

We were delighted to be able to organise such a vibrant day for the Laidlaw community at Trinity and we're looking forward now to doing this on an even bigger scale when we host the Scholars conference in October!
