As Columbia Women in Business, we made the special promise to foster a lifelong community where women can achieve their personal and professional aspirations – we possess the power to mentor, to inspire, to make a difference.
During Women’s Week, CWiB provided its members the ability to impact the community through its partnership with Girls Inc. of New York City. At this event, CWiB members shared advice about their college experiences with 25 female high school students through fun and interactive conversations on academics, extracurriculars and internships. The bonds the girls created with each other and their mentors were so beautiful to watch! The girls also built their inner confidence, celebrated their individuality and set ambitious goals for themselves.
So, you want to make an impact? There are a lot of ways! Whether you have a couple of hours a day, week, month or year, there are plenty of opportunities to help build strong girls with Girls Inc! Click here to learn more.
