Founded by Annoushka Ducas, the scheme scheme aims to raise much needed funds for young women in the UK. That's more important now than ever:
⚡️Prince's Trust research shows over half of young women say their anxiety has increased because of the crisis and finding a job feels impossible.
⚡️Women are one third more likely to work in a sector that is now shut down than men. (Institute of Fiscal Studies)
⚡️80% of those who have lost their jobs since the crisis began are women. Two-thirds are aged 18-24. (The Times)
It was therefore very special to sit down with some of our female members and discuss the topic of empowering women, as well as each make donations to this worthy cause. We started simply by asking "how has 2020 been for you?" Conversation flowed from joy and loss to confidence, ageism, balance, imposter syndrome and celebrating small wins.
