National Career Day 2016

Dreams to Reality: National Career Day

This fall, Girls Action is organizing its third National Career Day to help girls explore new career options, meet inspiring women leaders, increase their confidence, and expand their view of themselves and their futures!

National Career Day is also an opportunity for women leaders in both traditional and non-traditional careers, who are passionate about their work, to provide intergenerational mentorship to girls in their communities.

I have been waiting for a space of our own, one where sisters who looked like me sat across from me and we shared our struggles and triumphs.”  - 2015 Career Day participant

Consult our brochure Why Girls? Job and Money and our infographic Redefining Leadership to get more information on girls and career prospects, and to better understand why it’s important to have alternative career day events!

When will it take place?

The National Career Day events will take place from November 14th to 30th, 2016.
