The social enterprise connecting business and refugee women in London.
Daisy Jacobs is co-founder of Routes social enterprise. It pairs early to mid-career women in London with refugee and asylum-seeking women, for a four-month mentoring programme.
Routes matches pairs of women based on their location, skill sets as well as their personal and professional interests and trains its mentors in communication and listening skills, leadership and coaching techniques.
On its last programme, mentors supported their mentees to launch their own catering businesses, apply to university, exhibit their paintings at a public event, improve digital skills and get work experience.
