Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
The ‘If Chloe Can’ charity is all about reaching out to girls and young women to give them careers advice, providing role models as well as practical advice on how to pursue a career.
At the heart of this charity and its programmes is careers advice and its impact on social mobility. The charity successfully opens pupils’ eyes to the opportunities available, supporting them to research career options and realise aspirations they may otherwise have dismissed.
The charity was created from a long-standing interest of its founder, Esther McVey, in working with young women for whom access to appropriate role models has historically been too limited. Today, Esther and her fellow trustees feel that the task is still to challenge the effects of the persistent paucity of female role models in powerful positions across almost all walks of life. Their determination is evident in the programmes they promote and the supporters they involve.
