On Thursday 21st of February 2019, with sponsorship from Accenture, we brought together just under 100 U.K. based young females, who were aged 14 - 19, for a series of interactive workshops and informative sessions based around our 2019 theme, ‘BecomingHER’.
Attendees were challenged to step outside their comfort zone, develop new skills and network with like-minded individuals, bringing them one step closer to becoming the best version of themselves.
The four key pillars under ‘BecomingHER’ were: Leadership, Health & Wellness, Financial Management and Becoming You.
After the summit, there was 53% increase of attendees who reported that they felt more informed about how to spend money efficiently and prudently. There was also a 54% increase in apprenticeships knowledge.
Students also pitched, in teams of 3, to the full room of attendees, corporates, workshop facilitators and and the thinkHER ambition team which was not only impressive but extremely rewarding.
