Ever since 2012, October 11 is International Day of the Girl. This day spotlights the ongoing challenges and needs girls face as they mature and navigate towards a successful future.
Even in 2018, according to the United Nations, of the 1 billion young people – including 600 million adolescent girls – that will enter the workforce in the next decade, more than 90% of those living in developing countries will work in the informal sector, being subjected to low pay or no pay, abuse and exploitation often.
On this special day and always, the Exceptional Women’s Network seeks to promote girls' empowerment and here is how:
In alignment with both the United Nations and Girl Scouts of America’s theme of career exploration and a skilled girlforce, Exceptional Women’s Network is co-partnering with Motorola Solutions Inc. Foundation and the Women’s Business Council to host a “Faces of Bravery” event on Nov. 11. The goal is to honor those female veterans and public safety officers who serve as extraordinary role models to the younger generation of girls.
We are proud and honored to invite sixty girls to this event to chart new career pathways that will best prepare them for a successful transition into the workforce.
"Achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls is the unfinished business of our time, and the greatest human rights challenge in our world." — UN Secretary-General, António Guterres
