Girls With Ideas is an organization that exists among the intersection of many different disciplines, the most salient of which are leadership and gender. We believe in the power of education to teach leadership skills, as leaders are developed rather than born. We also believe in the power of girls and women to make significant contributions to our local, national, and global communities through leadership. Many people, however, do not value girls’ leadership, and this disbelief is well documented in many communities. We see this as a problem that needs to be solved.
