Gender Equality

Females are vastly underrepresented in leadership positions in the U.S. across all sectors and industries, and less than 5% of CEOs in the U.S. are females.

eGirl Power programs work to "Educate, Empower, and Elevate" the next generation of future leaders to break the glass ceiling.

Research has shown that low confidence among teenage girls results in failing to reach full professional potential as women; and only 1 in 3 girls with low self-esteem is confident in having a successful career.

The good news is that this can be reversed with action. eGirl Power empowers girls to improve their confidence, self-esteem, and achieve their full potential.

Girls who have participated in the eGirl Power program showed average gains of 20% or more improvement in self-esteem, as measured in self-esteem surveys provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

eGirl Power PIFA Award Honoree Loreen Arbus, the first woman to head programming for a U.S. network (a feat accomplished twice, at Showtime and Cable Health Network/Lifetime), talks with eGirl Power about the underrepresentation of women at her Manhattan apartment on Central Park West.
