Event Details

Join us for an interactive, informal, and dynamic personal and professional development workshop with Girls Inc. DC.!

United Women in Business Foundation (UWIB) is excited to facilitate a fun, casual, and group-based workshop for the Girls Inc. high school program. UWIB is inviting female professionals of all age groups, career levels, and areas of expertise to join us for break-out sessions, group discussions, thought exercises, and ice breakers - with the opportunity to meet some of DC's most inspiring high school girls.

Attendees of this event will have the opportunity to share their own professional experiences with Girls Inc. members, help them perform light mock interviewing exercises, discuss thoughts and aspirations, and reflect on lessons learned. If you're interested in chatting about life, careers, and future goals; want to explore a mentoring experience; or are simply excited to engage about interesting career or personal experiences; this event is for you.

No experience, preparation, or expertise is required! Girls Inc. members are eager to hear about your experience in the "Real World," post-high school - whatever that may be. A UWIB facilitator will walk groups through activities in a casual environment, encouraging attendees to share their thoughts and experiences with Girls Inc. members. Come to share, listen, connect, reflect, and work with a fabulous group of women and girls!

What You'll Get:

  • An informal, group-based setting to explore coaching in a small group, exercise light mentoring skills, and gain resume-boosting experience in a laid-back environment
  • Thought-provoking activities and break-out sessions that promote connection, learning, and fun
  • The opportunity to meet and connect with some of DC's most motivated and inspiring high school girls

Partner Spotlight:

The network of local Girls Inc. nonprofit organizations was founded in 1864, and now serves girls ages 6-18 at more than 1,400 sites in 400 cities across the United States and Canada. Girls Inc. provides constructive, research-based programming in healthy living, academic enrichment and support, and life skills instruction. Across the decades, Girls Inc. has adapted to meet the specific environmental challenges facing girls and young women, always working in partnership with schools and communities. Woven into those early girls’ clubs are the same core values of Girls Inc. today: the importance of creating a safe gathering place for girls to learn and to share in a sisterhood and a strong premise that each girl can develop her own capacities, self- confidence, and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. At Girls Inc., girls learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face.
