The Girls in Movement looks to empower young girls across the world to ensure they have the tools, advice and positive attitude to kick start an idea.
My name is Polly Dhaliwal I am the founder of the Girls In Movement. For those of you who are unaware of The Girls in Movement, it’s a project very much in it’s infancy which has kick-started with a podcast series and has successfully launched on Itunes.
Girls In Movement started as a project to empower young girls with little or no access to education – across the world.
I want to empower young girls across the world to believe that they can wake up one day and have the confidence to kick-start their own idea or venture
The Girls-In Movement is very much an early stage project but has been backed by founders already across the UK and has raised the eyebrows of investors.
This is a not for profit project, so it needs to be a lean startup, the podcast has been a great way to connect with potential mentors, and get the word out there.
We have just finished Episode 12, and the line up of guests are very exciting for the next few shows, I want to ensure there is a mix of conversations, from people of different backgrounds. So far we have had, founders, BBC presenters, Radio DJ’s, Fashion designers and much more.
The podcasts are a great way to connect with founders across the world and hear their stories. In the current series alone I have already got a number of ides of where this movement could go. Also with the backing of each podcast guest so far it gives me huge confidence in the movement itself.
Guests so far include:
Manjit Gill, Woman of the Year & Founder of Binti (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4tGyybhUxk)
Michelle Hua Founder of Made with Glove and representing women in Tech.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWczTMuLMfo&t=2s)
Award winning Journalist & presenter Anila Dhami. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6H02yQkldY )
I am always looking for exciting start up stories to encourage my listeners, so do get in touch with myself if you are interested or know someone that has an inspiring story.
What does success look like for Girls In Movement?
A girl in a small village on the other side of the world, can be connected with a CEO/ Founder from any country. She can ask questions, ask for advice and see how they can make a small idea/dream into a reality.
I want people to get involved as much as possible, if you know someone who would love to share their story then get in touch. If you want to circulate this series then you can access via Itunes (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-girls-in-movement-podcast/id1299777264)
I am keen to hear from individuals who perhaps work with schools either across the UK or in villages across the world, as I think there could be an interesting overlap.
The Girls-In movement is a lean and exciting project to follow, with no website or funding it is an inspiring movement for young girls and we want to see where it goes.
