On July 8th, Team Girl Leading were reunited at Mulberry to share the outcomes of their Personal Leadership Challenges at our Feedback Day.
The Feedback Day was an exciting and inspiring event. All of the young women who took part in Girl Leading have carried out extensive work to support the education of girls around the world, running events ranging from summer fairs to petitions and peer education campaigns. It was fantastic to see the range of leadership skills and styles on display, and to see students challenging themselves and achieving their goals.
Students shared details of their PLCs with each other, ate lunch together, and took part in some reflection activities to help them to consolidate the work that they have done as part of the project. Award winning performance poet Kat Francois joined us to perform a brand new piece of work about inspiring young women.
We closed the day by announcing the winners of our Personal Leadership Challenge competition, the school whose PLC has been the most successful overall. We were delighted to award the PLC trophy to Wadham School in Somerset. All of the schools who took part in Girl Leading achieved fantastic things, and we are immensely proud of all of the young women who joined us at Somerset in April, and again at Mulberry in July.
Once again, we’d like to thank our partner schools, who supported this project with passion and determination from the beginning. We look forward to future Girl Leading events.
