Children begin to dismiss possible future occupations because of their gender or background between the ages of seven and eight.

I Can Be is an educational project that challenges these early ideas, by taking primary school girls to visit inspiring women in their workplaces.




Exposure to female role models expands girls’ knowledge of the working world and helps them to keep their minds open to as many possibilities as possible.

 I Can Be helps girls to make links between what they are learning and real-life, as well as their own futures.
