The Tab Future 100 in association with Barclays

This nationwide search set out to find and celebrate the young women currently breaking the glass ceiling at university and who are set to achieve great things in their careers. 

With gender equality a huge topic at university, The Tab prides itself in being at the forefront of the conversation through the promotion of equal rights for young women. The Future 100 platform gives high achieving, aspirational, young women at university a stronger voice and improved opportunities.

Split into 3 distinct phases, the campaign launched with a nationwide, online voting system to identify the future 100 female leaders. Students were encouraged to vote and the candidates were then celebrated in a digital, interactive league table, profiling each entrant. The Top 30 were then recognised at a mentoring event held at Barclays HQ.

The campaign generated 215,000 votes, over 40,000 social engagements and more than 750,000 page views.
