Girls imagining their futures!
Girls Action is launching National Career Day, a new pilot project taking place across the country.
For the last six years, Girls Action Foundation has inspired girls to start imagining their futures during interactive Career Days held in Montreal schools. More than 100 women in traditional, outside the box and in-demand careers have shared their stories, passion and expertise with some 800 elementary and high school girls.
We need to start young to support girls in cultivating their confidence, skills and experience in order to reach their full potential. With the right conditions, girls can grow up to improve their own socio-economic situation and create a ripple effect in their communities. Creating those conditions starts with understanding that as girls grow up, they face many pressures and systemic barriers that influence their abilities to plan their futures and achieve financial security.
