This event celebrates the achievements of girls and young women in the care-system over the past year.
The event will be in the form of a graduation ceremony with prize-giving and speakers exploring the potential of human rights globally, nationally and locally to promote equality and justice for girls, with a focus on those in the care system.
Partnering with the Sister System, a North London-based charity providing educational empowerment programmes to girls and young women in the care system (ages 13-24yrs old), the event celebrates the achievements of those girls and young women to work towards nationally accredited qualifications they have achieved through the Sister System.
Speakers include Professor Jill Marshall (Royal Holloway, University of London).
