She Can Be

Take on the world of business - and the glass ceiling - in an action packed day in the City of London. Think Girlguiding meets 'The Apprentice'!

Girlguiding meets ‘The Apprentice’ to show young women that they can be the business leaders of tomorrow

Join us for a day of discovery, experience and inspiration behind the scenes of the City of London.

The City is the financial heart of the UK and home to some of the world’s biggest banks, insurers and technology companies. This event will give you first-hand experience of what it’s like to work there as a woman today. It might even inspire you to be a business leader of tomorrow.

When Tuesday 13 February 2018

Where Mansion House, London, EC4N 8BH

Breaking down barriers

We’re joining forces with the Lord Mayor’s Appeal on this one of a kind event. Together we want to change the perception that the City is ‘just for men’. That’s why we’re also giving you the chance to learn from business leaders at the top of their field about what they’re doing to tackle the glass ceiling. 

What’s happening on the day?

  • Exploring City industries: Visit world-leading companies and take on team challenges inspired by the world of business
  • Share your thoughts: Come together with other teams to share what you’ve learnt
  • Meet inspirational women: Ask them everything you ever wanted to know about working in the City
  • How to break the glass ceiling: Be the first to hear new research from Girlguiding
  • Make a pledge: Join senior business leaders in pledging actions that will make the City more accessible to young women

Who can take part?

This event is for 14-18 year old members of Guides and The Senior Section. You might not have thought about a career in the City before. But if you like to try new things - and break the mould - this day is for you.

How much does it cost?

The event itself is free.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to cover the cost of accommodation or travel to the event so you’ll need to make your own arrangements for the day.

How to apply

Complete our online application form by 9am on 4 December, telling us why you want to take part.

Remember, you can always ask an adult or leader for help. And make sure that you have your parent or carer’s consent to attend.

We’ll get in touch with you in early December if your application is successful.

Unfortunately, we can’t get in touch with everyone who applies so if you haven’t heard by the end of December then we’re afraid you haven’t been successful.
