On August 25, G(irls) 20 announced their name change to Fora.
On their website, they shared that “over the past two years, we have seen a seismic shift across the world, and we have heard calls from our community, rightly demanding more from the gender equality movement. As we developed our new strategic plan, we consulted our program participants, partners, staff, board of directors, and our broader community, and the feedback helped us focus our new strategy on two core areas: impact and growth. This strategy better supports our community, our wider mission, and our founding principles. With this, G(irls)20 has evolved with a new name.”
Their signature programs of Girls of Boards and the Global Summit, will be joined by a new program called Next Level which will run the first cohort starting this autumn. Next Level’s goal is to “tackle the most urgent disruptions caused by COVID-19, we are training young women and gender diverse youth who have been shut out of the retail and hospitality service sectors to develop their leadership and social entrepreneurship skills and navigate the new economy on their own terms.”
Applications are now being accepted for Next Level and to learn more and the application process please click here.
