Employers and Professional Bodies: Inspiring Women
The national Inspiring Women campaign launched in October 2013 and in 2016 we reached our first target of 20,000+ amazing women ready to talk with girls in state schools about the ‘job they do’ and route they took. Our ambition now is to double the number of women from a wide range of occupations going into state schools and colleges, and talking to 500,000+ young women, over the next year.
You can be an 18 year old Apprentice or a CEO, work for yourself or for a multi-national, be working full-time, part-time or having a career break – girls in state schools want to hear about your job, career and life experiences.
Pledge one hour a year to change young lives by volunteering to talk with girls in school.
