Young Women’s Trust Chief Exec Dr Carole Easton OBE to leave charity

5 March 2019

Carole Easton will be leaving Young Women’s Trust at the end of May after more than six years as Chief Executive.

Carole was responsible for leading the charity through a major transformation and building a team which has established Young Women’s Trust as a thriving organisation, providing unique confidence and employability services for young women and advocating for change to achieve equality for women.

Dr Carole Easton said: 

“It’s been an enormous privilege to have led Young Women’s Trust and I am pleased to be leaving the charity in great shape and in such safe hands.

Despite the undoubted progress we have made, there is so much more for Young Women’s Trust to do, and sadly its work is needed more than ever. As much as I am looking forward to taking on new challenges after six years at Young Women’s Trust, I will miss being part of such a great team – but I know they will continue to build the impact of the charity to the benefit of many more young women.”

Jo-ann Robertson, Chair of Young Women’s Trust said:

“Under Carole’s leadership, Young Women’s Trust has gone from strength to strength, due in large part to her dedication and unwavering commitment to putting the needs of young women who are facing discrimination and disadvantage at the centre of the charity’s work. We are hugely grateful to Carole for her time at Young Women’s Trust and for the incredible team she has built at the charity, we wish her well for the future.”

Young Women’s Trust has begun the process of recruiting a new Chief Executive.
