GirlDreamer supports women of colour to live their best lives.
We are a non-profit organisation based in the UK that supports the personal and professional development of young women of colour to tackle social inequality and pursue their dreams.
Our aim is to see a more representative world through tackling both social change and systems change by working with communities and companies to bridge the gaps that are causing a lack of representation and access to opportunity for women of colour at all levels across all industries.
Working directly with our community means we can create meaningful and lasting change. We provide opportunities for growth, both personally and professionally, through innovative programmes, resources and digital content.
Working with organisations and leaders across all sectors means we are able to challenge and disrupt some of the current systems and break down the barriers to accessibility through our unique consulting, workshops and equitable recruitment services.
We like to think of change as a whole rounded picture where everybody is doing their part and is accountable for the betterment of our world.
GirlDreamer is here to provide a platform. A safe space where women of colour can share, connect and grow with tailored support to create the next generation of leaders who can truly create a more equitable world.
SOME OF OUR MAIN
We provide programmes to support women of colour into social entrepreneurship. Our goal is to increase more women of colour leaders in society and utilise their lived experience by doing so.
We run a range of initiatives throughout the year with the goal of increasing access to opportunity for women of colour in different sectors, both on an introductory and developmental level.
We offer consulting and workshops to organisations, in the social and private sector, to create authentic engagement amongst young communities of colour both on and offline.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Women of Colour are one of the most marginalised groups in society.
Are underrepresented in almost every sector
Face the highest pay gaps
Experience the highest rates of discrimination
Have additional cultural barriers
Face increased socio-economic barriers
Receive fewer opportunities
…and that’s just to name a few!
Women of colour are definitely not short of talent and ambition but rather, we lack access to opportunities, representation and tailored support that takes into account our unique lived experiences. Should we have full access to all of those things, the social fabric of society would completely change and in our opinion, for the better.
