Primary Futures: Inspiring Women
The national Inspiring Women campaign launched a year ago and already has 12,500 amazing women ready to talk with girls in state schools about the ‘job they do’ and route they took. Our ambition is to see 15,000 women from a wide range of occupations going into state schools by summer 2015, talking to 250,000 young women.
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.
