girlz run the world
Conferences designed to inspire girls to pursue their dream careers through
empowerment, training and mentorship.
There are many people who believe that it's time we live in a world with gender equality. The Girlz, RTW (Run the World) Conferences, are meant to take that belief to the next level. Our conferences are meant to inspire and equip girls to pursue their dream careers. Held in partnership with multiple local sponsors in Toronto, these conferences give girls the opportunity to hear from amazing speakers across various career fields, go on field trips to different workplaces and even get paired with a mentor who can support them and guide them in their journey into the workforce. After hosting the first conference in-person, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to pivot into an online format where we can reach hundreds of girls across the Greater Toronto Area, as well as other parts of the world.

They will meet with someone who is working in that industry, and learn more about their career, while also participating in a hands-on activity that will help them experience the career.
The final part, Mentorship, will give girls the opportunity to apply to Girlz,FTW's existing mentorship platform, and get paired with a mentor for a six-month mentorship program. The program is designed to support and guide them on how they can reach their goals in their
