The Gyrl Wonder Leadership Academy is a dynamic, week long workshop giving young women of color between the ages of 16 and 21, access to mentoring sessions with female executives of color in various industries in New York!

GWLA attendees will participate in small mentoring sessions with executive women of color in the entertainment, tech, journalism, and beauty industries at their respective headquarters in the city.

Each day, our gyrls will engage with a different mentor to learn about her career path, discover their own passion and how to make the most of college to turn that passion into a fulfilling career.

This will be a week of self-discovery, empowerment, education, and relationship-building.  Our desire is for attendees to complete the week equipped with the tools and knowledge to be successful disruptors of the status quo.
