This project will fund a series of virtual camps for girls led by diverse women leaders in artificial intelligence (AI), entrepreneurship, environmental science, and financial literacy. These inspirational camps feature industry-leading role models and are offered free of charge to girls of all backgrounds. Career Girls believes girls and young women have the right to dream. Your donation gives girls education and resources to make their dreams come true.
Women, especially BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) women, are underrepresented in science, tech, and entrepreneurship. Studies have shown that girls suffer because they don't see women in these roles. Without interventions like this project, girls abandon science and other STEM-related subjects by age 15. It permanently affects the rest of their careers. Society suffers because we are not taking advantage of the full talent pool to create a better, more prosperous world for everyone.
Inspiration and education change lives. Your donation will directly fund a series of high impact virtual camps designed to help girls of all backgrounds create a blueprint for their future careers. The camps give girls access to industry-leading women and supportive peers. Through high-quality virtual education, we ensure that girls' futures are not put on hold due to COVID-19. 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.
