Enterprise Week - Celebrating Women's Achievements

The equipped2succeed ‘Girls Aiming High!’ project has been developed with girls in Nottingham aged 11 – 16 to:

   Empower girls to aim high – fuel aspiration and increase motivation;

   Enable girls to build confidence and self-belief; 

   Equip girls with the tools to set goals and achieve them.

The programme has combined equipped2succeed personal development workshops with physical activity, sports and creativity tasters.

During the Girls Aiming High equipped2succeed Enterprise Week:

- girls worked in teams on an equipped2succeed team challenge to create a Women Aiming High Exhibition showcasing the achievements of 14 women

- participdated in a range of workshops including - Goal Setting - The Power and The Process, Creative Photography, Confindent Me Drama Workshop, Presenting and Pitching and Yoga for Mind and Body 

The teams created a marvelllous exhibition visited by over 50 people.
