The BIC Corporate Foundation is partnering with Girls With Impact to deliver after-school entrepreneurship education, with a focus on social entrepreneurship. BIC’s contribution will support Girls With Impact’s 2020-21 goal to serve 2,000 low to moderate income girls. During the Covid-19 pandemic Girls With Impact trained 2,500 girls from across the country through its signature Entrepreneurship Academy and workforce readiness workshops. Girls from more than 40 states and five countries have participated in Girls With Impact’s courses, which include business, entrepreneurship and innovation. This program drives college preparation and workforce readiness outcomes in areas that have long been barriers to women’s success. For example:
85% of graduates feel confident as leaders
60% improve financial literacy and savings
93% feel more college ready
