WHAT WE DO

At Dare To Dream we believe that if you can dream it, you can do it.

We organise events at which inspirational women share their stories with girls from disadvantaged backgrounds. We call it ‘TED talks for girls’. Our aim: to encourage girls to live their dreams.

 

WHY

55% of girls say there are not enough positive female role models

61% believe a strong role model would help them achieve their goals

60% don’t consider a career in engineering because of a lack of female role models

43% think girls want to be hairdressers because “some jobs are more for girls”

Less than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology and engineering are women.

 

 

“Young girls need to see role models in whatever careers they choose, just so they can picture themselves doing those jobs someday. You can’t be what you can’t see.”
