A one-day event for girls aged 14-19 yrs to connect with professionals and mentors to learn about opportunities in the world ahead, and to start building digital, sustainability, and leadership skills this summer.

This hybrid (in person and online) event is being held at Saïd Business School and kicks off an exciting programme of learning and an opportunity to build projects that help the planet.

This will be a special day of looking ahead, introspection, and personal development to help young people prepare for jobs of the future. They will learn about changes needed to create a more sustainable planet, and start building their vision for the world they want to see.
