Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold sm

Girls Inc. has shown me that college is not an option; it is a necessity if I want to succeed in life. It will open doors like never before." - Brianna, Girls Inc. National Scholar

 

Scholar Spotlight

Bianca Tops HBCU's List

Girls Inc. is proud to announce that Girls Inc. alumnae Bianca Bailey has been named to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities annual Top 30 Under 30 list. In addition to this remarkable accomplishment, Bianca, who received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 2012 from Howard University, was the only African American woman in 2014 to receive a Master’s of Science degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Bianca’s work and her focus as a Ph.D. student at UIUC is on using black and green tea leaves to purify and clean water – an area that she has helped advance in Sudan, Kenya, Abu Dhabi, and Nepal. 

Bianca grew up in a single-parent household after losing her mother at a young age. At Girls Inc., she felt supported in an all-girl environment, and she also discovered her passions for science and math through hands-on activities that allowed her to explore her curiosity in these areas. When Girls Inc. introduced her to a female engineer through Eureka! Bianca knew she found a mentor and someone who would be in her corner to help her navigate typically male-dominated STEM fields. As a participant in a Girls Inc. entrepreneurship camp, Bianca gained the skills to apply her love of science to business. 

Today, she is a White House Champion for Change, a former Girls Inc. National Scholar, and a role model for all young women in STEM. 

Congratulations, Bianca!

Girls Inc. Joins Google's Made With Code

Girls Inc. is excited to share our support of an important new initiative driven by Google. Education of our girls is our number one priority.

Technology is a critical part of our lives and we know that the future of our girls relies on their ability to adapt and learn to keep up with this quickly changing world of innovation. Computer Science and coding are quickly becoming the new literacy, but less than 1% of high school girls see Computer Science as part of their future.

Made with Code, a Google social initiative will create a coding culture for girls based on creativity and will strive to inspire millions of girls to experience the power of code. The goal is to demonstrate how coding can help girls pursue, and reach, their dreams. Made with Code will encourage girls to write their own future and show them that it can take them anywhere!

Read more about how Girls Inc. and Google are helping girls create and innovate with code.

Staying STEM-Focused This Summer

This summer, Girls Inc. girls across the country aren’t taking a break from learning. Instead, they’re immersing themselves in hands-on STEM-related (science, technology, engineering, math) activities that promote empowerment, equity, exploration and fun!

Through Operation SMART and Eureka!, girls build their analytical skills and learn to think like scientists by working with scientists. This experience sparks a love of learning and an interest in emerging fields, and it develops girls’ skills that make them confident leaders.
