Committed to raising empowered girls

Lean In Girls is a leadership program that helps girls see themselves as leaders in a world that often tells them they’re not.

The curriculum is designed to equip girls to be self-assured, resilient, and inclusive everyday leaders and inspire them to lead boldly. With support from the Lean In Girls community, the program aims to remove the obstacles in girls’ way and encourage them to lead on their own terms.

Lean In Girls x IWD

At the heart of Lean In Girls is a curriculum for girls and young teens who identify with the girlhood experience (ages 11 to 15).

With a balance of strength-building activities and real talk on important topics like bias and allyship, participants learn to embrace their leadership superpowers and reject stereotypes about what girls can’t do.

The emphasis on leadership strengths and real talk is empowering and protective for girls.

When girls are introduced to a more expansive definition of leadership, they’re more likely to see themselves as leaders.

When girls know how to identify and push back against unfair treatment, they’re less likely to internalize limiting messages and blame themselves when they experience bias.

And when girls take positive risks and learn new skills, they can feel a powerful sense of agency and accomplishment.
