The Leadership Institute

The Mission:

To provide mentorship and leadership development for MoCo EmpowHER’s most committed members; to build a strong community of middle and high school girls across the county; to form a safe space for the discussion of sexism, sexual assault, and other gender-based discrimination; to grow a sense of confidence among a close-knit community and provide young women with a varied set of knowledge and leadership skills.

What We Do:

Over the course of a two month program, participants attend bi-weekly Zoom workshops on strengthening leadership skills and understanding of women’s activism, including public speaking, intersectionality, implicit bias, and team dynamics. At the end of each session, participants are assigned a new group of girls to work on a project. Participants also have access to a Google Classroom with free career-readiness and women's empowerment resources.

Our Work:

Intersectionality One-Pagers:

The fellows researched a movement or issue that affects women today with a specific focus on intersectionality: how this issue affects different identities differently and how to address this reality. Then, they created a one-pager detailing the issue and the stance they thought MoCo EmpowHER should take. 

MoCo EmpowHER

MoCo EmpowHER is a women's' leadership organization based in Montgomery County, Maryland focused on establishing a safe, vibrant, and close-knit community for young women to unlock their full potential. Affiliated with MCPS.
