Welcome to our first ever blog post…
We hope that you are just excited as we are, as we embark on this new journey, in this new year and this new decade!
So who are we?
Well, we are a team of 6, all in our 20s made up of analysts, product developers, mathematicians, different genders and races. We have broad interests ranging from yoga to coding to reading but all share a common interest and that is thinkHER ambition.
What do we believe?
We believe in the importance of early intervention. Often, young females are a neglected group left behind and encounter various barriers that prevent them from unlocking their true potential, whilst profoundly affecting their access to life-changing opportunities. The world is changing and with changes comes new possibilities and opportunities, we birthed thinkHER ambition to ensure that no young female is limited due to a lack of skills, knowledge and access.
Our number one goal is to develop and inspire the next generation of female leaders through skills development and training.
Why do we believe this?
Our research has shown that 70% of the thinkHER tribe, prior to attending our events or workshops, are unaware or have not built upon the different soft and technical skills needed to successfully navigate through life. Adding onto this, 60% of the thinkHER tribe lacked confidence in their public speaking skills prior to attending our #BecomingHER summit. This is a clear indication that there is a need for thinkHER ambition and what we do.
What are we underpinned by?
Our key values of course! Which are..
- Forward-thinking – we see the bigger picture, do you?
- Tech-led – technology is driving the future and so are we
- Collaborative – we can’t do this by ourselves, we say yes to collaboration
- Curiosity – we push ourselves and the thinkHER tribe to think outside of the box
- Commitment – if we do it, we have to do it right
So what now?
Well, 2020 is our year of rebranding and refocusing. In the past, we have focused on providing skills development and training mainly through events and workshops but we are moving away from this and want to digitalise our offering. We are working on creating an online resource hub and an e-learning platform so that we can change the lives of not just those in the United Kingdom, but young females around the world.
What’s in it for you?
Since 2018 we have been closing knowledge gaps, raising aspirations, providing new opportunities and upskilling the next generation of female leaders so that they can turn their dreams into a reality.
