Mya-Rose Craig quote


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 to 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 in 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 to 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

Have you seen our Catalyst Summit and Mentoring Programme? 

Mentoring programme

Mentoring is a proven and effective method of impacting young women to develop their confidence and to assume leadership and management positions later in life. 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. The mentees evaluated confirmed that they identified and achieved a goal and would recommend the programme to others.

School & Community Workshops

WorkshopWe also offer a range of workshops – half or full day – to inspire young people of school age or community groups to think about a career in sustainability. These workshops are framed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We design and deliver the workshops to be suitable for mixed age ranges and gender groups. They can be tailored to the groups objectives and needs but generally tend to focus on (1) strengthening female leadership; and (2) finding their passion towards a sustainable future. We can facilitate these online or offline, giving participants the opportunity to connect with a like-minded group of individuals who want to change the world.

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, V6 Sixth Form, Bristol
