Gumption Girls

Gumption Girls is the brainchild of Olivia Robertson, one of the winners of the Social Innovation Competition 2018.

Gumption Girls is a social enterprise that delivers workshops to inspire girls and young women aged 5-18 to be more confident, creative and resilient. Their innovative approach uses science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM) activities to introduce and explore emotional wellbeing, empowering girls to believe in their abilities and develop a growth mindset. Their mission is to challenge gender stereotypes and help girls discover who they are and decide where they want to go.

"I'm delighted and honoured to win this award. It is a really exciting time for Gumption Girls and the award will enable us to develop new programmes to reach and support more young people in Fife”. Olivia Robertson, Founder, Gumption Girls
