Resource Solutions announces partnership with Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders

Written by Robert Gould  •  RS News  • 22 February 2022

Resource Solutions is proud to support Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders – a UK charity that aims to provide career exposure and skill-building opportunities for disadvantaged school-age girls of African and African Caribbean heritage and show them real-life possibilities. 

ITL improves the academic and life outcomes of these teenagers through two flagship programmes, supported by an amazing network of professional black women. The Accelerator Programme, founded in 2018, is a series of leadership conferences, workshops, career focused events and digital offerings intended to inspire and empower our audience. In March 2021, the charity also launched the ITL Scholars programme – a five-year course for young girls supporting them from Year 9 through to Year 13 (aged 13 to 18).  On the programme, the Scholars benefit from mentorship, expert and individualised attention on their personal development in order to ensure their academic and professional achievements. 

Kimberley Matalon, an ITL Trustee said: 

“ITL's partnership with Resource Solutions has been critical in the further development of our flagship programmes by providing us with a three-year sponsorship commitment as well as access their expertise and resources. Their overall support ensures that we can continue to deliver high quality, expert-led and impactful programmes.”

In addition to financial sponsorship, we have invited ITL to make use of our facilities in London, enabling the charity to focus their funding on providing these targeted programmes. This partnership also gives Resource Solutions professionals the opportunity to gain direct leadership and mentoring experience by engaging as role models for the students, and helping them develop critical skills such as CV writing and interviewing.

Commenting on the partnership, Norma Gillespie, CEO of Resource Solutions, said:  

“I truly admire ITL’s mission to empower young girls of African and African Caribbean heritage to unlock their full potential. The leadership team has a rich understanding of the needs of this community and Resource Solutions’ partnership with the charity presents an exciting opportunity to make a real impact. ITL Scholars is unique – no other programme supports girls for such a sustained period during their most critical development years. We are thrilled to be a part of the programme and look forward to seeing what these young girls achieve.”
