April 12, 2024
I was pleased to welcome young women to Hartford for LiveGirl Day at the Capitol last week. LiveGirl, Inc. is a Connecticut-based nonprofit organization that builds confident, inclusive leaders. Founded in 2014, the organization's mission is to prepare the next generation of diverse, brave female leaders with the skills, community, and connections so that ALL girls may thrive and make a positive impact on the world.

LiveGirl, Inc. serves thousands of girls in grades 5 through college age annually in free-of-charge innovative leadership development and mentoring programs. The programs are evidence-based and proven to build self-esteem and social-emotional intelligence, the building blocks of a confident leader. LiveGirl also provides girls with authentic opportunities to build bridges to people whose lives are different from their own, the key to becoming an inclusive leader. The organizational lens is centered on the needs and experiences of ALL girls, especially girls of color. The leadership approach is skill-based, anti-racist, healing-centered, and gender inclusive.
