Key findings for 2018: A society failing its young women

  •  At every stage of education, young women are getting less access to careers support than young men.
  •  Young women are less likely to have work experience opportunities.
  •  Young women are 20% less likely than young men to have ever received experiences like CV workshops and visits to university.
  •  75% of young women have never had the option of starting their own business discussed with them.
  •  Only 38% of young women are confident that they know the skills employers are looking for, in comparison to 54% of young men.

Laura-Jane Rawlings the CEO of Youth Employment UK has this to say about the results of the census:

"As a society we are not where we thought we were; young people are still not getting the information they need to help guide and support their future. Young women, specifically, are being disadvantaged. We must ensure that key information and support is reaching all young people and their influencers."
