Power of Women

Tell us your story

Help us shift and lift the aspirations and ambitions amongst young women across the Tees Valley.

We believe that today’s young women have the power to change the world – and that each and every one of them should be given the opportunity to do so.

The purpose of The Power of Women campaign is to give Northern girls a ‘voice’ to deliver their ambitions. We’re calling on you to use your own voice to drive ‘dreamers’ to our interactive website, which will feed into schools and act as a platform to showcase some of the boldest, brightest and most remarkable women in the region.

If, like us, you believe in the Power of Women, we’d love for you to complete this self-service story form to help us submit your story on the POW website.

All we need from you is answers to the questions below (no more than 1,000 words in total) and a high-resolution image of yourself.

Thank you for supporting this campaign to help us help today’s young girls make their mark on the world!

If you would like to complete this form offline, please download the Word document below and email back to [email protected]

(What do you do now?)
(How did you get there?)

(Three words that inspire you - what do you say to yourself when you need motivation?)

Upload your headshot, as well as any additional photos you’d like us to consider for your story.

The file size of your headshot should be no larger than 1 MB. We request that the image is in colour (no black-and-white or sepia-tone images). We will publish your headshot along with your story. Please note that by default, a stock photo will appear as the featured image at the top of the page with your story if you ticked anonymous or did not send a photo of your choice that meets the aforementioned size specifications. We cannot guarantee publication of your accompanying photo, should you choose to send us one, but we will do our best to publish it if it meets our criteria.
