What Girls Need: Empowering Girls In 2020

Oct 12, 2020

It has been over seven years since Sheryl Sandberg’s breakthrough book Lean In'' hit the shelfs and started a conversation about women leading in the workplace. But sexism is far from obsolete in today’s job market. 

The good news is, skills to thrive in the workplace can be taught long before a woman accepts her first job offer. This hour, what can we do to teach young girls confidence and resilience in tomorrow’s world? 

Marisa Porges, author of What Girls Need: How to Raise Bold, Courageous and Resilient Women joins us to talk about how parents and educators can help our children develop grit, audacity and self-confidence.

What about your daughter? We want to hear from you! Join us for this Girl Power conversation and tell us how you are working to build your daughters self esteem!
