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.

The summit

The first part of each conference, the "Career Summit," will be run with a group of 100 girls at a time. They will have the opportunity to learn about careers in five different streams, participate in empowerment activities and workshops focusing on developing different skills, hear from guest speakers, and connect with the other girls in the program.

The field Trips

Following the Career Summit, "Career Field Trips" will be held. These will give participants the opportunity to visit a workplace from the stream they are most interested in. 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 Mentorship

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

careers.
