EPISODE 14: Who Wins When You Win? with Charly Young, Co-founder of The Girls' Network. How our campaign is supporting girls to reach their potential.
Donna is delighted to welcome Charly Young to the podcast.
In 2013, Charly co founded The Girls' Network with her colleague, Becca. Starting out as a one-to-one mentoring scheme for 30 girls, The Girls' network has grown to support over 1000 girls a year aged between 14 and 19 to overcome barriers and access to opportunities, as well as giving them the confidence and skills to seize those opportunities and thrive.
Their impact speaks for itself: 93% of girls on the programme last year said their mentor had improved their confidence, and 96% believe their mentor has helped them feel more positive about the future.
In 2020 we were extremely proud to launch a new partnership with The Girls' Network as part of our Who Wins When You Win Campaign. So for anyone who doesn’t know, we help businesses and individuals to recognise their teams and business achievements with hugely valuable awards.
And to give them and our team an even greater reward, every time one of our clients wins an award we make a donation to The Girls' Network. We’ve just launched the campaign for 2020 and we’re really looking forward to sharing our winning success with this fantastic cause, because together we believe that no girls should have their futures limited by their gender, ethnicity, background or parental income.
Donna O'Toole is CEO of August, she has had the pleasure of supporting entrepreneurs, business leaders and teams to win the most prestigious awards in the world. Seeing first-hand how receiving awards and recognition has motivated teams, solved problems, supercharged brands and raised their profiles, helping businesses to grow and do even more good things for their employees, their industry and their community.
