Girls Leadership is an Oakland-based nonprofit organization whose mission is “to teach girls to exercise the power of their voice through programs grounded in social emotional learning.” Through programs for girls, workshops for families, and professional development training for school leaders, Girls Leadership centers social justice, gender, and racial equity in its work in order to fully address the “internal and external barriers to leadership development.”

Saint Mary’s alumna, Kendra Carr ‘20 (EdD in Leadership), is the Chief Program Officer at Girls Leadership. After almost a decade of working in an all-girls school in Oakland, CA, Carr joined Girls Leadership as a way to further her deep commitment to advocating for the needs of all girls, especially those at the margins of society. She centers her work on her core values which include love, community, humility, equity, and a commitment to liberating action. 

On Wednesday, March 10th, Carr and the Girls Leadership team hosted the Girls Leadership’s 5th annual Power of Voice Celebration, coming together to honor five women who are using the power of their voice to change the world. Each of the honorees — Billie Jean King, Marley Dias, Meena Harris, Samhita Mukhopadhyay, and Suni Harford — will be thanking the person who helped them step into their power.
