Young Women's Trust Awards

Our team had a fantastic time at the Young Women’s Trusts Awards last night. We heard from some truly incredible young women, whose achievements are an inspiration to us all.
We had the pleasure of sponsoring the Trailblazer Award, won by Tara O’Reilly. Through hard work and perseverance, she has achieved great things in not one, but two male dominated industries; law and politics.
Tara was made homeless three times and didn’t have the opportunity to go university like many teenagers. However, she was always determined to succeed and taught herself A-levels whilst working full time in a Mexican food truck.
Having previously worked for Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, on his election and attended the World Youth Forum, she now has a full-time job in Parliament leading on areas including policy, political advice, digital. She is balancing this alongside studying her law degree part time as a mature student.
Not satisfied with trailblazing merely for herself, she takes pride in sharing her skills and experiences with other young women. She has volunteered abroad, helped people set up their own portfolio websites and is a trustee for a human rights charity.
Tara has previously used the services of the Young Women’s Trust, and is a brilliant example of the life changing effects the charity can have on women.
Huge congratulations to Tara and all of the other winners and thank you to the Young Women’s Trust for involving us on the night. We are incredibly proud to support this fantastic cause and look forward to our continuing involvement on the ‘Work It Out’ programme.
