Our Mission

“As the daughter of a single mother who worked two full-time jobs, a mom of two young girls myself, and an entrepreneur in the financial industry, I know first-hand how difficult it is for women to get ahead – and stay ahead.

 

That’s why it’s time to create the first generation of women who will lead from the top. Women who will think nothing of creating a business or being the next CEO.”

 

Jennifer Openshaw, CEO & Founder, Girls With Impact

 

We need Girls with Impact… because these are the realities our daughters are facing:

  • In just three years, 40% of the US workforce will be freelance
  • Women are still paid less – 78c for every dollar earned by men – and continue to be under-represented in high-skill, high-wage jobs – from tech and engineering to the CEO spot
  • Only 6% of CEOs are women
  • And although women start about 38% of all businesses in the US, they receive only 2-6% of venture funding

 

By creating the next generation leaders – from all walks of life — and a strong network that will serve them in both the corporate and public sectors — we can change these statistics.
