More about ‘Inspiring Girls’

The objectives of Inspiring Girls are to inspire girls to aim high by connecting them with women who “return to school” in order to share their professional experience. Getting to know female role models helps grow the professional ambition and self esteem of the girls, as well as their expectations about the world of work. It helps them see the wide variety of professions and jobs that exist and always reminds that the fact of being a woman doesn’t imply any limitations, as it’s the effort and consistency that matter.
