our mission

We are a career and employability social enterprise on a mission to empower the next generation of INDEPENDENT career women. We do this by running programmes and courses to equip young women (between 15 years to 30 years), with skills and knowledge to thrive in any career path they choose. We do, however, place empathises on ‘stereotypically’ male-dominated roles and industries. We believe that every female can be successful regardless of their gender, ethnicity, background or socioeconomic status. 

Our vision

We want to see 50% of women in senior positions, 50% starting businesses and 50% in all industries. Our programmes shed a positive light on stereotypically male-dominated industries and roles. We want all girls to make an informed and confident decision about their careers.

our story

' I Graduated from University with an excellent grade in Bsc Economics (a very male-dominated degree), with great work experience and connections. But still found myself earning less money, and in staying in junior roles in comparison to my male counterparts. I soon realised I lacked the skillset and confidence to talk about my achievement and abilities to employers., also I felt extremely uncomfortable talking about money. Finally, I had a fear of taking risks which held me back.  After studying about the gender pay gap, I realised that a lot of women face the same issues. I never wanted another girl to go through what I went through, especially the ones who don't have the opportunities that I had. Ms Independent was born'

  • In 2020, only 5% of FTSE 100 CEOs are women. The FTSE 250 is even further behind, with just 2% being CEO's.

  • 57% of female's in the UK have never attempted to negotiate a pay rise, and that men were 23% more likely to negotiate a rise at all stages of their careers.

  •  Fewer than one in five small and medium-sized enterprises in the U.K. are led by women. While women in the UK outnumber men by around 1 million, there are twice as many male entrepreneurs as females

There are many reasons why gender pay exists in so many industries. However, for us, we felt that it is important to focus on developing female students, career connections, skillset and confidence. so that they can be successful independent career women in ANY career their choose.
