Summary

Girls are at the center of the work we do. We believe in their futures. We are driven by our mission that every girl should have access to diverse and accomplished women role models, to learn from their experiences, and discover their own path to empowerment.

Challenge

Women, especially BIPOC women (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), are underrepresented in science, technology, and entrepreneurship. In our society, the "Imagination Gap" - the difference between career choices that girls imagine for themselves and the range of careers actually available for them to pursue based on their interests - is still too common. Girls, particularly BIPOC girls, may not see themselves in higher-paying jobs of the future; they may not even know that these careers exist.

Solution

We provide not only the "see it to be it" but also the "how to be it." Thanks to donors like you, all of our programming and resources are 100% free. There are no barriers to access our CareerGirls.org platform. There is no charge to participate in our in-person and virtual programming. Our interviews with over 800 diverse and accomplished women role models and the resulting 16,000 videos inspire girls to take the steps necessary to prepare for and achieve the career of their dreams.

Long-Term Impact

Career Girls empowers girls to have agency over their lives and design their destinies. For a girl who has yet to discover the world, your donation will give her the tools to develop personally and create a blueprint for her future career. Broadly, we all benefit. We enhance girls' opportunities to enter the workforce in critical industries. The results are higher incomes, higher living standards for women and their families, and stronger, more inclusive solutions to the challenges we face.
