    The Women’s Foundation is committed to narrowing the leadership gap in our communities by empowering more women to lead. 

    Each year, they select a group of teenage girls in the Kansas City metro area to participate in a year-long leadership development program. They’re starting early and investing in future women leaders because they know that’s the only way to get more women elected into office.

    If you're a young woman currently in 9th, 10th or 11th grade in the Kansas City metro area who is a good candidate for Girls Leadership then apply at the Women's Foundation website!  They will be accepting applications for next year’s class until Friday, March 6, 2015.

    Help bridge the leadership gap by helping to develop a strong pipeline of future women leaders.
