“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.
