Strong, Smart and Bold Girls

This morning I volunteered at Girls Inc’s 15th annual Women in Leadership: Making a Difference Luncheon. Girls Inc has been in Santa Barbara for almost 60 years and I simply love everything about it. Their mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold through research-based, data-driven educational and enrichment programs.

In the background you can see Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson giving the keynote (she’s the best). Today she pointed out that Santa Barbara’s senator, congresswoman, DA, mayor and police chief are all female! #bossladies

The event was beautiful and inspiring. I am so thankful to live in a community where women are represented, celebrated and invested in. I found this video particularly moving, and all their literature is just spot on (seriously considering printing and hanging their Bill of Rights in my house).

If you have girls, I’d highly recommend looking into their programs or if you’re interested in getting involved it’s easy to volunteer–there’s a center in Santa Barbara and one in Goleta as well!
