SUPPORTING THE NEXT GENERATION OF WOMXN

This International Women’s Day, we’re challenging the way things have always looked. Buck the system. See positive change. Envision a brighter future. Donating over $100,000 USD to non-profits around the world, including Girls Inc. of Alameda County.

We talked to some of program leads for a short Q/A about helping empower, inspire, and equip young girls to succeed.


From top to bottom, left to right: Akilah, Kristina, Maritza, Rosa, and Halle

Q: THIS YEAR’S INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY OFFICIAL THEME IS CHOOSE TO CHALLENGE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION?

HALLE, GIRLS INC. US: I believe that I challenged the "model minority" myth—or rather redefined it for myself—and broke down barriers even my family did not think was possible. In doing so, I was able to forge my own path and show up today as an Asian American woman working in education.

KRISTINA, GIRLS INC. US: For Girls Inc of Alameda County, we choose to challenge inequalities our youth may face, and help our students realize their voice through education and supporting growth mindset. 

Q: WHAT DOES BEING AN ADVOCATE + WHAT DRIVES YOUR DECISION MAKING?


AKILAH
, GIRLS INC. US: Being an advocate for other girls and women is an intentional practice—I understand that I must use my time and talent to create a world where women, girls and femmes are afforded the opportunity to pursue their dreams with pride and tenacity.

MARITZA, GIRLS INC. US: As an advocate for other girls and women, I see myself as a sister eager to share my knowledge/experiences in hopes of having a positive impact on other's growth. My understanding of society and my values help me with decision-making.

ROSA, GIRLS INC. US: Being an advocate for girls is about opening doors that were once shut by society.
