Collectively: Inequality Challenge

1 brief. 100 participants. 10 ideas.

Apply now

On the 18th and 21st of July, Collectively are bringing 100 of the brightest minds to central London to unpick one big problem: inequality. They'll be exploring inequality in all its forms, across race, gender, sex, class and more. 

What's on the agenda?

July 18 - Day 1

The Issues: Part conference, part conversation - a full day immersed in the many strands of equality. You’ll hear from speakers and bring your own experiences and views into the room, challenging each other to broaden your understanding and mapping out opportunities for action.

July 21 - Day 2

The Ideas: Fast-paced idea generation. You’ll hear from experienced innovators who have built initiatives that tackle inequality, then generate your own ideas and solutions to the problems you identified in Day 1. The day ends by gathering the ideas that have the most potential for real world impact and forming teams to take them forward.

What happens after the 2 days?

Collectively will support the groups to turn their ideas into reality through weekly seminars, coaching and mentoring and intensive 'doing days' where teams get to work on their ideas with support. After the four month program, teams will have the chance to pitch their tested ideas to senior leaders from M&S and Unilever as well as experts in innovation and equality. 

Who can participate?

One Young World Ambassadors can apply to join the program. Collectively are looking for anyone who is:

  • Motivated to end inequality
  • Passionate about collaboration
