young women of color to live at their fullest potential and share their truth while creating seats for them at the table.
Why We Focus on Young Women of Color?
53% of African American girls surveyed expressed a desire to be leaders as compared to 50 percent of Hispanic girls and 34 percent of Caucasian girls. Yet opportunities for leadership are scarce.
READY TO LEAD a 2020 report by Girls Leadership states, “Over 1 in 3 Black teachers noted that at their schools, students of color experienced bias and unfair treatment in the form of not having the same opportunity to get leadership roles [and] teachers [had] lower expectations for students of color compared to White students.”
For young women who don’t have access to resources we provide hands on career exploration opportunities as well as innovative ways to bridge the gap between working professionals and students.
