The Gender Equality Charter (GEC) was founded by Cat Wildman (@catwildman2000) and Nicole Ponsford (@nicoleponsford). The GEC is all about creating ‘native gender equals’ through UK homes, schools and businesses. Action starts with achieving gender equality in schools. In signing the Gender Equality Charter, and working towards being awarded a badge of equality, schools are making a visible and public commitment to working towards equality in their institution.

As Sir Tim Berners-Lee noted, “The original idea of the web was that it should be a collaborative space where you can communicate through sharing information.” The internet is a place designed for humans to connect. Those who know me (Nicole Ponsford) know that collaboration and celebration are my jam. Over the last decade, I’ve been fortunate to be part of and create a range of online communities - from my new startup, The Gender Equality Charter (GEC), my new #Edtech50-winning WomenEdTechers (the digital side to WomenEd), to those first few curriculum-based blogs I did as an NQT. I have learnt a few things along the journey, but there is one thing that stands out.
