Inspiring Girls Colombia holds first event
On the 6th June Inspiring Girls Colombia held their first event in the Fundación Nueva Granada School.
There were six female role models speaking at the school event, an actress, a plastics artist, a painting and ceramics teacher, an occupational therapist, a fashion designer and a publicist. About 20 girls from grades 10 and 11 attended.
This event was a pilot to showcase how our campaign works, which will help to promote and encourage women and schools to register in Colombia to participate in Inspiring Girls.
The event was fantastic and the girls felt really motivated by the different female role models there that they could speak to and question about their careers. The school directors were so impressed by the campaign that they want to arrange another event for next semester, plus two more schools have asked to join.
The Colombia team are now looking at dates to officially launch Inspiring Girls nationally.
Well done to Colombia on a wonderful first school event!
