Sharing the Love (of Shoe Design!) with Teens this Summer
A special thank you to The Office of Angela Scott for their ongoing support of girls and teens.

Angela's team taught teens this summer about the business of footwear and the role each person has in order for the business to function and thrive.

In addition to learning the business principles of this female-owned company, the teens learned about design and function before creating their own shoe design to present to the company. The team surprised the teens each with a new pair of (Girls Inc.) red sneakers!

We are grateful to Angela and her team for their engagement (and we finally got to have that check presentation from their Share the Love event benefiting Girls Inc. prior to the pandemic this winter!)

A Century of Progress and the Continued Fight for Gender and Racial Equity
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment and women’s constitutional right to vote.

Often overlooked in the pages of history, women of color have played an instrumental role in advancing civic engagement, voting rights, and social movements for centuries. That’s why it’s so important for girls, particularly girls of color, to be civically engaged as early as possible.
