:: OUR MISSION ::
TO INSPIRE A GENERATION OF POSSIBILITY THINKERS & IGNITE A VISION FOR EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
The purpose of the Girls Can Do event series is to host events around the country and the world, at no cost for young women and girls. Our events are special days where girls come to engage, connect, and share experiences with amazing women speakers who are pursuing their dreams. At each event we offer access to dozens of year-round programs as “next steps” for inspired Possibility Thinkers through our Girl Partner Network. Our unique speakers are positive role models who are everyday, yet extraordinary women sharing stories about choices, determination, hardships, failure, resilience, and success.

Our vision is that our speakers and events inspire a generation of girls to make a difference in their lives, the lives around them, and the world. Our events give young women support, encouragement, and the knowledge that they can pursue their greatest dreams. After all, opportunities are endless when you are a Possibility Thinker.
