Thinking Beautifully shapes who we are, what we do, and how we do things.
We ultimately aim to make the world we live in a more positive place by pioneering and contributing to the philanthropy and causes we hold close to our heart, from mentoring women in science to sustainability.
We’re not waiting for girls and women to be the leaders of tomorrow, they’re leading today. One empowered girl leader at a time.

We Empower Women.
“Women in science are very important.” - Sir Fraser Stoddart. In his fifty-year career, Sir Fraser realized early on that scientific collaboration facilitated by diversity across culture, gender, and different ways of thinking paved the way to inventions and innovations that otherwise would not have happened. Surrounded by a family of female PhD scientists, from his wife to his daughters, Sir Fraser believes that teaching and supporting women is a singularly important part of his academic career.
We continue Sir Fraser’s legacy of mentorship by partnering with Girl Up to specifically focus on globally empowering girls’ development through education, in the US and beyond for a global impact. We aim to promote and support science in underserved communities as well as inspire young women to pursue science to create positive change. Science is dependent on diversity, most notably women, to push it forward with breakthrough innovations.
Girl Up is a non-profit organization founded by the United Nations Foundation whose mission is to achieve gender equality worldwide through leadership development training programs that give girls the resources and platform for social change wherever they are.
