Supporting Women of the Future
Together we can change the world
These are challenging times, especially for today's students, and we need to support, encourage and
inspire them in what lies ahead. In particular, we want to do even more to support women who might
not otherwise have a chance to study here.
Gender injustice is so embedded in our society and our world, that sometimes we stop seeing it.
We accept the rows of men sitting in parliaments or the latest gender health, education or pay gap
figures with a shrug and a sigh. It's time to wake up, give ourselves a shake and confront those
content with the status quo.
That is why I am proud to launch the Women of the Future Scholarships Appeal –
to support the most talented women, those that are willing to challenge
conventions and push boundaries across the world.
This is our investment in women of the future. I would be
so grateful if you could support this appeal. Every donation makes a difference to students today –
and each of them can change tomorrow.
