A group of female students from Prendergast Vale School in Lewisham, South East London came to Trinity Hall recently to hear from social innovators.

They were accompanied by the Founder & CEO of Social Ark, Lisa Stepanovic, which enables resilient young Londoners from marginalised communities to cultivate social enterprises, driven by their own lived experience, purpose and values.

Lisa is one of three entrepreneurs recognised with the 2021 Cambridge Social Innovation Prize, awarded by Trinity Hall and the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation at the University of Cambridge, for her creation of Social Ark.

Each young entrepreneur visiting Trinity Hall this week has been selected for Social Ark’s ‘Here Come the Girls’ 17-week female empowerment programme.

The programme targets young women identified as aspiring leaders with socially conscious ideas and mentors them with weekly workshops, business learning, inspirational panel talks, discussions and mentoring from Social Ark alumni social entrepreneurs and senior female leaders.
