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 in the future; they may not know that careers even exist.
Career Girls' programming proves that empowering girls with access to diverse and accomplished women role models is essential for opening up their worlds to new career possibilities in the future. Our guiding principle for our programs is that every girl who attends sees herself in one of the role models, learns from her experiences, and discovers her own path to empowerment. With your help, we are building the next generation of environmental scientists, roboticists, CEOs, and more.
This project directly enhances 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 address critical challenges facing our world.
