Join Career Girls and Share My Lesson for a webinar that will prepare girls for today's workforce.

Soft skills are extremely important to being successful in the workforce today, but these skills are often overlooked. Girls need to start practicing skills such as building relationships, taking initiative, and teamwork early on in their education. Technical skills are needed to be considered for a particular job, but learning soft skills will advance their overall career path and accomplishments. Career Girls helps by providing high-quality, commercial-free resources for career exploration. Our Empowerment Lessons are videos featuring inspiring and diverse women who offer real-world insights and advice on how girls can master their soft skills with corresponding curriculum created by education experts. From exploring wide-ranging careers to learning the importance of integrity and teamwork, your students can use this video-based tool to expand their horizons and learn what it takes to turn a skill, interest, or dream into a professional career. This webinar will cover how to use the Career Girls website and Empowerment Lessons effectively. Our series of lesson plans are suitable for use with individual students as well as with small and large groups and focuses on helping girls build success while they’re still in middle- or high school.
