Our CEO Asma Shah is Stylist’s Woman of the Week

“Ultimately, it’s in everyone’s interests to develop the talents of young women so they can contribute to society, grow the economy and make London a more amazing and vibrant place. Our women don’t just come off our programme and get into paid work – they set up fantastic initiatives of their own, create jobs by setting up their own businesses and work on social change projects. They’re enriching society – so supporting them has to be good for everybody.” - our CEO Asma Shah on why supporting You Make It should not be seen as a purely altruist act.
