The drive and impetus for our campaign was ignited by our founder Professor Jane Turner OBE DL, who was Pro Vice Chancellor for Enterprise and Business Engagement at Teesside University. It was Jane who carefully selected a board of directors who would see her vison into a reality.
Members of the board are all passionate about gender equality and the need to champion the role women play in driving the economy. Crucially, they believe in aspiration for all and particularly the need to target the most socially disadvantaged young women in the Northern Powerhouse area.
