Since the Center launched last school year, Emily has worked to deliver a variety of programming for students.

About the CGYWL Program

The Center for Girls’ & Young Women’s Leadership (CGYWL) provides research-driven programming and experiential learning to cultivate confident, poised, healthy, and capable young women.

We believe all young women have the capacity to develop leadership skills no matter their professional aspiration. Most importantly, we believe young women have the confidence to lead themselves. Based on their personal values, each CSG student cultivates their unique and authentic leadership style to make the spaces they occupy better. In all things, we encourage the mindset of “when, not if” they have a seat at the table.

Students will benefit from enjoying an annual speaker series, special programs, and experiential learning that center their voices and leadership development; as well as an array of curricular enhancements and strategic partnerships to expose our young women to opportunities and female mentorship.

As they take advantage of unique programmatic opportunities to expand their leadership skills, students will become skilled at carrying themselves with confidence. As they grow more comfortable using their voices, they will more adeptly be able to articulate their goals and needs, cooperate with others, and effectively lead their peers. The CGYWL is the premier program in central Ohio in which girls can foster the skills and practices necessary to move through their world with strength and grace.
