empowering a new generation of girls and young women
Girls these days have serious aspirations. A 2010 Angus Reid study revealed Canadian girls (8-12) are more inspired to succeed than ever before - with 54% believing nothing would stop them from achieving their dreams, 51% wanting to run their own business, and only 4% believing their gender would prevent them from landing their dream job. So yes - the next generation are revved up and ready to make an impact.
Contrast this with Canada’s clear and persistent gender gap.
Whether it’s corporate leadership, elected office, or business ownership – women remain underrepresented.
At ambiSHEous, we’re focused on equipping girls and young women with the tools they need to live well and thrive because someday soon, they’ll be in the lead.
UNLOCKING TOMORROW'S POTENTIAL TODAY
Founded on the premise girls and young women can and should be encougaged to lead early, we combine entrepreneurship training, citizenship education, and leadership development to shape the very real ambitions of girls and young women in a positive, world-changing way.
ambiSHEous ran its first StartUp Self session as a pilot in the spring of 2015, in collaboration with the Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre in Ottawa. A total hit with participants and parent alike, we've been going ever since. We've engaged more than 300 girls and mentors in 3 cities in Canada and around the world trough multiple successful two-day workshops, unique alumni events and sponsored sessions. In addition to growing our community, we continue to explore ways to expand our offerings and reach more ambiSHEous emerging female leaders!
