The Girls Network looking for North East women mentors

The Girls' Network works with schools to match 14-19 year old girls with strong female professionals to act as a mentor to increase confidence, aspirations and self belief. Most girls are influenced by the people closest to them, if they do not see women in challenging and rewarding jobs in varied roles they are unable to have the self belief needed to aspire to these roles themselves. You can't be what you can't see!
