In partnership with The World with MNR, a registered non-profit corporation founded by twin activists and journalists Maryam and Nivaal Rehman, we created Girlz, RTW Summit, a new project to empower girls to dream big and pursue non-traditional careers.
The Girlz, RTW (Run the World) Conferences aim give girlz around the globe access to training, empowerment, and mentorship to pursue their dreams and reimagine the possibilities available to them. This year's conference is focused on helping girlz build resilience during tough times, create supportive communities, and gain a better understanding of themselves so they can unlock their own potential.
