Black Girls Can Leadership Academy
Today girls are overlooked for leadership roles merely because of their gender, and particularly, black girls far too often have to work twice as hard to get half as far. The Black Girls Can Leadership Academy works towards building both character and confidence while helping to unlock the black girl magic that lies within.
The Black Girls Can Leadership Academy invites extraordinary young women ages 13 – 18 in New York City and Washington, D.C with leadership potential to embark on an immersive hands-on curriculum which offers workshops, simulations, lectures, field trips and so much more led by industry thought leaders and tastemakers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Entertainment, Beauty, and Wellness.
From this program, girls will establish a further sense of self-worth, become a more well-rounded student, gain a stronger sense of self-esteem, increase their curiosity for STEAM education and consider entrepreneurship in the near future. This program will not only make a difference in the students’ lives but enhance the classroom discussion and build future leaders of tomorrow.
