#IWD19 Celebrations

It’s International Women’s Day on Friday 8th March and this year, we’ve collaborated with our charity partners The Girls’ Network to raise awareness and funds for the inspiring and empowering work they do in raising aspirations of 14-19 girls and young women from the least advantaged communities in the UK.

The International Women’s Day 2019 campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter is focused on driving gender balance across the world.

On Wednesday 6th March, we’ll be holding our Tribe meet ups up and down the country – and they’ll be focusing on the #IWD19 theme.

And in true Sisterhood spirit..

We’ve collaborated with Allbright and Forward Ladies two other leading Female Focused organisations doing incredible things to drive Gender Balance.

On the 6th March, our Founder and CEO Catherine Asta Labbett will be taking part in a LIVE panel discussion with Forward Ladies.

And on IWD itself, Catherine will be in London at Allbright leading a panel discussion on ‘spinning a side hustle’ along with members of the GTG team.

Save the Date #IWD19 Girl Tribe Gang

In partnership with The Girls’ Network

The Girls’ Network mission is to inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by connecting them with a mentor and a network of professional female role models. Girls can face multiple barriers in the classroom such as a lack of confidence, pressure to conform or a lack of role models.

Established in 2013, The Girls’ Network now works with more than 1,000 girls each year through the mentoring programme and 100% (in 2018) reported feeling much more confident, with 89% of teachers saying the girls were more resilient and self-motivated.

6th March Girl Tribe Gang meetups…

We have some incredible #powerhours planned with 100s and 100s and 100s of women coming together ALL on the same night to celebrate being a woman in 2019 AND to shine a light on the need to drive gender balance.

With inspiring and fist pumping empowering Power Hours from a huge range of amazing speakers..

We’ve got Fiercely Brave stories that will be shared, along with talks on Gender Equality and Balance, Ambition, Panel Discussions, The Power of Community over Competition, and a whole lot more – all followed by our signature relaxed connecting in some rather gorgeous venues, in the very heart of your community.

We’re supporting The Girls’ Network ‘Call to Action’ too, and here’s how you can get involved…

We’re asking everyone:

“What would YOU say to your teenage self?”

Research shows that only 1/3 of teenage girls feel positive about themselves and their futures. Help us inspire girls in the UK this #IWD19 by thinking back to your own experience: What have you overcome? Was anything not worth worrying about? What do you wish someone had told you?

Share a short video or a few sentences with us and let us know!

You can do this by emailing between now and March 8th, or by posting on your Instagram or stories on the day and tagging us.

Make sure you use the #DearTeenageMe #GirlTribeGang

Plus we’ve launched our Fiercely Brave special edition T-Shirts, with £5 from every sale going to The Girls’ Network

A BIG thank you..

Months of hard work and effort has gone into making this happen with our special project leads Tracy Ann James and Anisa Lewis working with The GirlsNetwork to make an impact.

Along with Beth Kirk and Melanie Eilers who have advised on the social impact and strategy of this campaign.

And Amy Victoria Goodall our HQ Design Queen collaborating with us on our Fiercely Brave charity tees.  

I personally want to say THANK YOU as without your support this wouldn’t have been possible.

We’d LOVE for you to get involved, and get your friends/sisters/BFFs involved with our Call to Action and show your support at our meet ups on 6th March. Help us support the work of The Girls’ Network, and to champion and celebrate being a woman in 2019.
