We’re living in a time unlike any other, because right now girls have more control over their lives than at any other time throughout human history.
Come join our global movement of dedicated women, men, girls & boys working together to create a new understanding of what it means to be modern women and girls. We are thrilled to have you with us.

Empowering girls to reach their full potential.

We empower girls worldwide through our projects, local GEM chapters and worldwide events.

Who We Are

We are accomplished professional people who empower girls to think big and do great things!

We are a business owner, a teacher, an insurance professional, and a partner of a law firm, along with many other amazing humans.
