There is also the opportunity to receive longer-term mentoring support – from professional woman already working in sustainability – following the event too

Here is SOME feedback from previous COURSES:

I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 3 days, met some amazing people and felt less anxious about the future now I know there are so many opportunities.” Catalyst Bootcamp participant   

It was a significant experience for [our daughter].  [We] have, in turn, gained so much from hearing her talk us through her highlights, plus – as parents- relish the couple of inches she seemed to have grown whilst there, with regards emotional intelligence and confidence.”  Parent 

“I have become more organised and calm about my future. Also I know how to deal with stress and anxiety due to the motivational sessions and I’m not afraid to speak up.Dominika

It’s an exciting industry to work because it is growing so rapidly, and there is so much innovation involved. All the speakers that I talked to were very passionate about their own subject and enjoyed discussing it with us, giving the impression that you can combine your work with what you are passionate about.”   Emilie

“During the 3 days I met the most inspiring females in my life. I didn’t expect to meet such active members in the sustainability industry. Meeting people who work for the UN from females who created their own startups in the local Bristol area showed me the variety of work I could get involved in as a passionate female myself.” Urvi

Mentoring is a proven and effective method of impacting the ability of young women to develop their confidence and to assume leadership and management positions later on. We run an annual mentoring programme from September – March for all the young women who attend our summer Catalyst Summit, with the aim of helping to raise their aspirations, confidence and educational achievements.

They are matched with a professional woman working in sustainability over a 3-6 month period to help them achieve a goal. From our pilot evaluation mentees confirmed that they: identified and achieved a goal & would recommend the programme to others.




We also offer a range of workshops –  half or full day – to inspire young people for sustainability and to support their green education and career pathway. These are framed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We design and deliver workshops for young women focused on (1) strengthening female Leadership; and (2) finding your passion towards a sustainable future. 

Traci came into our sixth form and delivered an engaging workshop to a group of Year 12 students. Her passion and knowledge of sustainability was clear to see and enthused our learners. The girls were challenged to consider their personal ‘why’ with regards to their own green career and it was fantastic to see them approach their post-18 options considering their own values. Our students really enjoyed the session and had a clearer idea of the soft skills they needed to develop for a successful career. We would happily welcome Traci back!”  Emma Lippiett, Deputy Head of 6th Form, Colston’s Girls School, Bristol

These school workshops are designed to be suitable for mixed sex/age groups and can be tailored to their objectives and needs.

Catalyse Change facilitate safe spaces online and offline – through workshops, residentials, mentoring and social media – in which participants can connect with a like-minded tribe of young women who are going to change the world.

Catalyse Change CIC | Online Safety Policy Nov 2020 

Catalyse Change CIC are increasingly hosting events and workshops online and recognise that this provides access to a greater number of young women wanting to engage with us. We also recognise that while the online world provides opportunities, it can also present risks and challenges. In response to this, we are committed to the following practices when working online.

  • Require pre-registration for all online events.
  • Provide participants the time to change their screen name and turn off their videos if the event is to be recorded.
  • Undertake identity verification of all attendees – for smaller events this will be visual verification using the video function (before recording); for larger events we will nominate an online safeguarding officer to verify the identity of each participant.
  • Make it clear that we reserve the right to remove people from the event should we not be satisfied with their identity. 
  • Make it clear that any incidents of inappropriate online behaviour – including use of language, showing offensive images, sending threatening or bullying messages – by any participants will not be tolerated. 
  • Disable private messaging during online events.
  • Regularly review and update our online safeguarding practices.
