Since 2007, our conferences and their associated education programmes formed the bedrock of work to give young women voice and visibility, as well as access to a wide variety of female role models from different walks of life.
Programmes were designed to develop leadership skills and to support the confidence of girls and young women, as well as to profile the importance of their voices. For over a decade, they have been female only spaces with the quite specific purpose of being a very visible platform for girls and women in a world where the male has been the accepted generic – with all that it implies.
In 2018, we decided to move on from a female only space to talk about equality. The Mulberry Schools Trust came into existence in 2016 and boys have now joined us in the leadership of this important conversation – what would a true partnership of equals look like?
