Lead like a girl
To create a global movement of women problem solvers, change makers and leaders
To empower young women to become problem solvers, leaders and change makers. We do that through investing in their education, providing leadership opportunities, and by catalyzing changes in social attitudes.
In India, the inherent abilities of young women to handle crises, provide intelligent and practical solutions, lead effectively and be change makers have been grossly unrecognized, unappreciated and underutilized.
In order to tip the culture towards greater women leadership, it is necessary to provide early opportunities for young women to become change makers, create impact and disrupt the way society perceives them. Here is our three-pronged plan to develop and nurture girl leadership:
The Lead Like a Girl Challenge (Click here to navigate to the Challenge)
Girl Advisory Board (GAB)
The main intention of this platform is to make a dent in the often apparent but mostly sub-surface narrative that women are meant to fulfill only certain roles in the society. Go Laadli wants to help girls defy these norms and help them (and their families) truly realize the full potential of young women as active contributors to society. It's a long road, but we believe the returns can be far-reaching.
How about yourself? As a young woman, have you personally faced situations when your family, friends, teachers or relatives were reluctant to believe in your abilities to solve issues, were hesitant to entrust you with responsibility, and did not value your skills as compared to your male siblings, colleagues or friends?
Were your male siblings preferred over you when it came to investing resources for your education?
Share your story! Were you able to fight back? What did you do? How did you feel? What would you do differently if you were to revisit the situation now?
We will feature selected submissions on our blog in the hope that it inspires other Laadlies. You can submit anonymously too.
