    Carving brighter futures for women of tomorrow

    Five months ago TED speaker and social influencer, Lavinia Thanapathy started the online movement ‘This little Girl is Me’. This sparked a huge public response which was driven by the statistic that 70% of girls feel more confident about their futures after hearing from women role models. Thousands took to social media to hashtag #ThislittleGirlisMe and share their personal journeys of what they would tell their younger selves to cultivate confidence and visibility of the achievable. This March we ask you to join us and do the same. A number of women at RSA who work in the technology space are sharing their stories in order to challenge stereotypes and role models to the next generation. Here are some of their personal stories:

    Recognising LGBTQ+ History Month

    Perhaps it is just human nature to look for danger and negativity because often when we reflect on history we tend to remember the troubled times. Like any optimist would tell you in a cycle the good times always follow the bad, hard work pays off and the good guy always gets the girl (or boy 😉) at the end of the film. LGBTQ+ History month is no different and we observe the often-troubling reflections of the past, teamed with the victory or triumph which followed it. June 2022 marks 50 years of the Pride celebrations in the UK and it’s amazing to think of the accomplishments achieved in that time regarding shifts in political climates, rights won and the hearts and minds which have been changed by our loving community. At Building Pride, we want to think of this year’s LGBTQ+ History month like it is 5,10,50 years in the future and what actions it would take now to achieve those future ambitions. We would like to predict a future where we will look back on there being a cure for HIV and AIDS, marriage is legal in all countries for all people and same-sex couples have the same rights to IVF or starting a family as anyone else. The actions we take today impact tomorrow's horizon and we are proud to do our part in that global shift.
