Spiela is a collaborative online network - Our mission is to engage those from under represented backgrounds and ensure that they have a safe and supportive space engage and network with others. Spiela connects talented people from diverse and challenging backgrounds with the belief that talent is equally distributed but opportunity isn't.
We do this by highlighting all of the amazing, incredibly talented people, initiatives and groups available in less fortunate areas, and connects them to the right people through events and the social networking website they are creating which is designed to help users develop and grow, both personally and professionally. From hosting events at Facebook HQ in London to dedicated Q&A nights on Instagram Live with various STEM influencers to putting on the very first Youth Summit festival in 2019 with Lewisham Council at Goldsmiths University…We are already making a difference in young people’s lives, for instance through these events many youngsters have come and found mentors to help them on their journey.
So we are delighted to announce that we will be working with the EY Foundation on future collaborations aimed at young people. Be sure to keep an eye out in July for an event we are hosting with EY Foundation...so stay tuned.
Luckily for us our values and what we are trying to achieve match up perfectly with that of the EY Foundation and we cannot wait to collaborate with them in the future to really make a difference in young peoples lives.
