Inspiring Young Women To Have A Voice – She’s Speaking Fund

A shared experience. A shared passion. A shared vision. These are the elements that bond and energize the members of She’s Speaking, a volunteer organization dedicated to helping women have an equal voice and value in our society. As business owners, parents, and civic leaders, the women and men of She’s Speaking believe that taking action at the local level can have great impact on large scale issues such as pay inequity and under representation in business and government leadership positions.

The volunteers recognize that true change needs to start with our girls and young women, and are dedicated to guiding them to be self advocates by providing education, support, and inspiration. They strive to create an outlet for women and girls of diverse backgrounds and talents to share their stories of personal challenges and success by:

  • Presenting workshops where mentors work with groups of young women to nurture their confidence, independent thinking and leadership skills.
  • Providing internship opportunities for high school juniors and seniors to mentor younger girls.
  • Partnering with businesses and individuals who support the organizational vision and mission.

We at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County understand the value of passion and partnership, and are proud to be the fiscal sponsor of She’s Speaking.  By supporting their mission of educating and inspiring young women to have a voice, we improve the quality of life for all today and in the future.
