Unblocking self-doubt, cultivating a growth mindset, and building entrepreneurial skills are key first steps to starting your own business or even getting ahead in employment.

At this event, our guest speaker Maggie Chen will share the story of her own student entrepreneurship experience, and how she came to found the award-winning Girls in Charge Initiative. She’ll also talk about how her successes and failures helped her build confidence, become more resilient, and cultivate a growth mindset.

This free event is being run by the Women in Enterprise Network. The network aims to bring business women together, to create a community to connect with, share business ideas and explore best practice.

You could be a UCL student, alumni or staff member, or someone who lives or works in London. You don't need to be a member of the Women in Enterprise Network to attend.

What to expect

As well as hearing Maggie’s personal story, you’ll also have the chance to participate in interactive, gamified activities from the Girls in Charge workshops to help you level up your confidence.
