We Speak

Profile

We Speak is a social enterprise which stops under-represented talent from going to waste. Employers say that communication skills are one of their top requirements. But young people from deprived areas are twice as likely to have communication difficulties and are therefore more likely to fall at the first hurdle of the job interview. We Speak runs a 4-week online programme that transforms the speaking confidence of under-represented young people by an average 44%, making it easier for companies to recruit diverse new talent. Corporate employees are at the heart of this transformation. We Speak trains employees in communication and mentoring skills which they then put into action on the programme. The result is hundreds of young people who are significantly more confident, and mentors who develop transferable skills to drive efficiency and collaboration in their own teams.
