Girls Global Academy hosted a Sisterhood Virtual Summit for Women’s History month in Marzo. The purpose was to spotlight women that are making a difference in our community, to provide opportunities for dialogue on topics that impact girls and women, and to give students space to share projects they are passionate about.

The sisterhood summit showed our students that women do not need to know each other well to show empathy, respect, courage, and camaraderie. Sisterhood and togetherness can be created within a short period of time especially when there are opportunities to stand together. We heard from our speakers that we may need to bring our own seats to the table, failure is a moment that shows you tried, moving on means moving towards something, and others do not define our identities. There was a true demonstration of an inspiration of change and voices that stand for equity and inclusion.

We are now hosting Sisterhood Miércoles’s for our student cohorts. Our students continue to build Sisterhood.
