ARE YOU THE NEXT GIRLBOSS?

Now, more than ever, the  world  needs confident, energised and resilient leadership from young women just like you.

That is why we have developed the GirlBoss Awards - a nationwide search for trailblazing young women (aged 11–18) who are defying stereotypes and creating change in their communities. We're after inspiring young leaders, facilitators, role models, and innovators.
