Women Leading Baltimore mission is to create space and opportunities for high school girls to embrace their power and authority through sisterhood, nurturing mentorship and access to meaningful experiences. In 2022, WLB will work with girls in Baltimore to host a weekend retreat in Washington, DC.. Girls will visit two college campuses and hear from current female students as a way to offer them an opportunity to see what college could be. WLB will also have girls dine at a local restaurants and have curious conversations with the women who work there to glean and learn more about their experiences in the hospitality industry. Afterwards girls will attend an empowerment speaker series for and about Black girls. Finally, the girls will explore, and support women owned businesses to inspire and encourage each girl to acknowledge her uniqueness and realize she is what the world has been waiting for.
