ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Name of NGO: Girls with Impact
Pillar: Access to Education for Girls and Women
Location: United States

Despite huge potential, young women lack critical support to reach the boardroom. Only 5% of F500 CEOs are women, 2% of venture funding goes to women and 6 out of 10 working women don’t see selves as leaders.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The project's objective is to equip girls with the knowledge, confidence and skills to be tomorrow's business leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs. Online business academy sessions are delivered to girls from low income communities, ages 12-18, with guidance of professional instructors.
Through this program, students will learn to launch ventures addressing market needs, grow their networks, prepare for college and career success, build self-esteem, and strengthen tech, financial and social skills to become tomorrow’s CEOs.
