Helping young women develop

the courage, vision and skills

to take on leadership

Helping young women develop the courage, vision, and skills to take on public leadership.

Girls For Girls is a Harvard Kennedy School born program when in 2017, a group of their post-graduate women leaders from across the globe recognised that women are being held back from leadership positions around the world. Inspired by each other, they decided to close the gap.

Challenges G4G Aims To Overcome

Our co-founders observed that across the world, women rarely receive the support to build their confidence, skills and network to advance their careers and run for positions of leadership.
