It was with trepidation and excitement that we began recruitment for our inaugural Youth Insights Panels this time last year. We know from our work with young people on our Big Ideas Programme that young people had the energy, imagination, and talent to have an impact on the world around them, but could they help to steer strategies and provide actionable solutions within a business at both a senior and operational level? And would young people even want to participate in influencing business decisions?
On Monday 8th November we welcomed Katie Salamon to the Solutions for the Planet team. Katie joins us as Big Ideas Programme Administrator, read more about her first month below.
I was so excited to join Solutions for the Planet; my greatest career goal has been to join a purpose-driven organization that brings innovation and positive change to the world, and that seemed exactly like what I’d find here.
