Women Employed would like to give a HUGE thank you to the young women of the Girl Up Club at Lake Park High School. They held a fundraiser for WE and collectively raised $182! Their contribution will help us reach our goal of closing the wealth gap at the intersection of race and gender, and we greatly appreciate them for generously funding our work!

The Girl Up Club is a global leadership movement founded by the UN Foundation in 2010 as an initiative to help support UN agencies that focus on adolescent girls. It is comprised of leadership development programs through 6,000 clubs in 130 countries, and in all 50 states. To date, the Girl Up Club has impacted 150,000 girls, inspiring a generation of girls to be a force for gender equality and social change. For more information on the Girl Up Club, visit girlup.org.
