The initiatives undertaken in March were a great success, thanks in no small part to our many corporate partners without whom these efforts cannot get off the ground.
We had two initiatives during the month of March. One from our partner Carbon38 called “Strength In Numbers”, which is an initiative to reframe the discussion around gender equality and rally the community to support the next generation of female leaders and entrepreneurs.
The second initiative in March was from our partner EleVen by Venus Williams called “Fill In The Gap” to promote the #PrivilegeTax movement in honor of Equal Pay Day, which is an initiative to bring awareness to the gender pay disparity that exists and help fill in the gap for girls.
Pamela Perkins Dwyer, Executive Director, had this to say to our wonderful partners: “Girls Inc. of Greater Los Angeles is so grateful for your wonderful support. We work hard everyday to encourage our girls to be confident and believe in themselves. Thank you for supporting us as we strive to encourage more girls in Los Angeles each day. From our girls, our board of directors, and staff we thank you for helping us to continue to inspire ALL girls to be strong, smart and bold.”
