girledworld PLANS TO BE A B Corp By 2017.
This matters to us a lot.
It matters because creating business as a force for good is what got us started way back when this was just an idea.
It's what gets us out of bed in the morning.
It's what makes us believe in the difference we're making with every girl we engage with.
And it's what keeps us doing what we do with a big vision, defined mission and strong purpose.
We practice what we preach.
This means we place our purpose at the centre of our business model and it informs everything we do. We check in regularly to make sure girledworld is doing what we say it will.
Equipping, empowering, educating and unearthing the potential of Australian girls aged 15-18 in leadership, entrepreneurship and STEM.
We also pride ourselves on working with great people who get it. People who think purpose-driven business is the business we should all be in. And people who want to create the change the world needs to see.
So we get behind and work with companies, government agencies, educational institutions, individuals and communities who rally around our social mission.
