Reach is the brainchild of leading Sky Sports presenter Sarah Stirk who believes that the path for women to reach the top of their careers has far too many barriers and obstacles. Having built up and recently sold her executive golf travel business, she is now focusing on helping other women achieve their ambitions

“Equality and diversity are so important in today’s world and I’m passionate about equal opportunities and rights for women, particularly in the sporting and business worlds. Reach will continue the momentum shift in this topical area by providing a collaborative community of aspirational women and building key allies with corporate brands who share the same values”.

Our vision

Reach has a vision which sees women reaching their career and life goals unhindered by inequality and traditional preconceived ideas and misconceptions. The Reach vision sees collaboration at the forefront of this, bringing together a like minded community of aspirational women.

The vision is not only to help women but to assist companies and organisations understand and engage with modern practices. We are keen to demonstrate the power of social change when it comes to equality and diversity and support the women leaders of tomorrow in their aspirations.

The Reach Community is a diverse entity with women from all sectors of industry, the media, start ups and culture, all sharing their experiences, ideas, knowledge and contacts to empower others.
