FOUNDER BRIXTON FINISHING SCHOOL
Ally is the pioneer behind the Brixton Finishing School for Digital Talent, her brainchild in response to the need for diverse talent & social mobility in the advertising industry. The 10-week digital 'accelerator' scheme for young, under-represented groups has disrupted industry conversations around inclusivity by enforcing REAL change. In the last 18 month, the programme has seen 50 young people from diverse backgrounds come together in an end-to-end solution of learning and development & placement. This year, Ally hopes to open the door to 100 young people through a ‘Beefed up BFS’, the launch of a ‘Night School’ & a Neurodiverse pilot in partnership with Creative Equals. A single mother who sacrificed her own money & time to fund the school, starting with just a credit card & a passion for change.
