No primary category set

Notonthehighstreet is celebrating the first anniversary of their three-year partnership with leading youth charity, The Prince’s Trust. Working with the charity to support its mission to empower women with a creative and entrepreneurial flair, notonthehighstreet has so far seen over 20 women participate in its mentoring scheme, which has been designed to support, nurture and inspire young women on The Prince’s Trust’s Women Supporting Women programme.

The past year has seen mentees able to attend masterclasses, on topics as diverse as creative branding and GDPR, as well as benefiting from dedicated time with notonthehighstreet’s expert team to discuss everything from product development through to sales and marketing.

“My experience with notonthehighstreet has been fantastic so far! Their belief in what we do has been incredibly humbling. I have been lucky enough to have been invited to have a shopfront on their platform and their support in assisting me to get this live, as well as developing my current collection to cater for the gift sector, has been brilliant. I feel truly privileged to be a part of the mentee programme.”
– Eleanor Nadimi, One Nine Eight Five, Mentee

In addition to the mentoring programme, notonthehighstreet has also been raising funds for the Trust’s Women Supporting Women programme through the sale of a unique and exclusive product collection created by female entrepreneurs already selling through notonthehighstreet. With 10% of proceeds made from each product sold going back to The Prince’s Trust to help them change the lives of young women.

Women Supporting Women Collection on Notonthehighstreet

To mark the second year of the Partnership, nine new Partners were invited to launch exclusive new products for the Women Supporting Women collection. Partners including Antipodream, Rock On Ruby and Baked by Lou contributed to this collection which is designed to champion women and girls. The new collection for 2020 is available here from today.

“We passionately believe that all young women deserve the chance to succeed. Our tailored programmes and long-term support give young women the practical skills and emotional resilience to pick themselves back up and create their own positive futures. Our partnership with Notonthehighstreet is so important in achieving our mission. We are so grateful for their support and ambition in helping us empower as many young women as possible. We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us.”
– Stephanie Bagworth, Senior Head of Corporate Partnerships, The Prince’s Trust

“We’re a business that has been built up by amazing women – from our co-founders through to the 82% of female-led businesses that sell on our platform today. It is incredibly important to us that we’re able to pay forward some of the opportunities we’ve benefited from to the young women on The Prince’s Trust Women Supporting Women programme, all of whom show such creative talent and entrepreneurial flair. We’re looking forward to what we can achieve over the next couple of years working with The Prince’s Trust.”
– Claire Davenport, CEO, notonthehighstreet

  1. Why is this okay?
    It’s exclusionary sexism in it’s basest form.

    “We’re a business that has been built up by amazing women – from our co-founders through to the 82% of female-led businesses that sell on our platform today.”

    Okay so your argument for equality just went straight out the window, where is your campaign to have more men selling on the platform to even out your massive gender gap? No, let’s embrace that gap and actively work from 82% to a less equal number.

    in the name of “equality” and “inclusiveness” there’s some awfully sexist and exclusionary stuff going down these days.

    I could understand the argument of pandering to your audience; except that’s illegal to do on the grounds of sex in this manner.
    e.g. shop X has an 80% male client base, despite being inherently un-gendered.
    so shop X runs men-only clubs, training campaigns only available to men, and openly excludes women from participating, for no reason other than gender.
    shop X will be closed down within a month, and rightly so.
    Please explain to me why we should be celebrating shop X being overtly sexist and discriminatory?

    I used to be all for equality, until it became so unequal.
