Change A Girl’s Life this International Women’s Day

On Monday 8 March 2021, the world will celebrate International Women's Day by challenging stereotypes and recognising women’s achievements.

In collaboration with some of the UK's much-loved retail brands, our Change a Girl’s Life campaign, proudly supported by Dell Technologies, will lead the charge to ensure the most vulnerable young women are supported now and in the future. 

60% of young women are fearful for their future due to the pandemic, with more than half saying finding a job “seems impossible”.

The Change A Girl's Life campaign is proudly supported by:

Many young women and girls face barriers to fulfilling their potential. In these unprecedented times, young women have been hit particularly hard - 78% of those who lost jobs at the start of the pandemic were women and two-thirds were aged 18 to 34. 

The need to support young women has never been greater. 

That's why we're committed to bringing brands together to design and sell bespoke products in support of The Prince's Trust, donate a percentage of their sales and encourage their employees to fundraise to Change a Girl's Life. 

It's not too late to get involved! We need more innovative organisations to get on board to give young women hope. Join our campaign to gain exclusive access to fundraising ideas, marketing materials and PR support which'll deliver brand impact. 

Change a Girl's Life in 2021

For many young women, their challenges seem insurmountable. During the pandemic, they've lost their jobs, taken on greater caring responsibilities, been affected by domestic violence, disability or mental illness. But The Prince's Trust is here to help them to re-build their lives. 

The Change a Girl's Life campaign is run by The Prince’s Trust Women Supporting Women fundraising group, made up of more than 80 passionate and influential individuals including Chrissie Rucker OBE from The White Company, Julie Brown from Burberry and Christine Hodgson CBE from Severn Trent.

Women Supporting Women aims to raise £10 million by 2023 to provide vital support to help nuture, empower and inspire young women to build their own futures through employment, self-employment, education or training.

Your support is the turning point.

How your employees can #ChangeAGirlsLife

Demonstrate your commitment to recognising and addressing the issues facing women today by engaging with the group closest to you – your employees!

We have put together a few ideas of how you can enable your workforce to support your International Women’s Day campaign, by raising vital funds to improve the lives of young women in the UK.

#ChangeAGirlsLife by recognising the inspirational women.

Set up a Just Giving page and encourage your employees to make a donation to recognise women at work who inspires them. It’s a good deed feed that keeps on giving. Download our e-cards that your employees can use to spread the word and thank the women they recognise.

#ChangeAGirlsLife by bringing your employees together.

You could engage your employees on the challenges women face with a Panel Discussion, host a Book Club to facilitate open conversations or host an International Women’s Day Quiz for some fun! We would love to join these events as well, to inspire your employees with the work of The Prince’s Trust and give them an opportunity to donate. Here’s a reading list and bank of quiz questions to help you!

#ChangeAGirlsLife by focusing on employee wellbeing.

The Prince’s Trust has supported fantastic young entrepreneurs that have set up businesses which promote wellbeing. By using their services, you’ll be supporting young entrepreneurs, and providing your employees with an opportunity to practice self-care. At the workshops, why not share information on The Prince’s Trust and ask for donations. Check out some of our young people’s businesses here

#ChangeAGirlsLife by Volunteering

We have a variety of volunteering opportunities this International Women’s Day. For more information and to register your interest, contact PTCorpVol@princes-trust.org.uk

We're always on hand to help, so please do reach out to your partnership contact if you need any further support.
