Our signature GirlBoss in-school workshops provide a transformative experience for young women.
"GirlBoss has equipped me with so many different skills such as personal branding, networking and public speaking. The workshop pushed me out of my comfort zone but taught me so much. Each time I tried something out of my comfort zone my confidence built and I felt more comfortable with using my new skills."
- Tulsi, Year 13 Student, Rangi Ruru Girls' School, Christchurch
