On Wednesday, August 11 Girls Write Now joined the employees of Forbes for networking and professional development through Girls Write Now’s college and career readiness program, Writing Works, giving young women and gender-expansive youth access and exposure to industries in need of their talents.
It’s August—and after being cooped up all year—we yearn to travel. At this workshop, Girls Write Now combined wellness with professional development for a much-needed trip to our “happy place!” Beginning with a series of grounding exercises and culminating in imaginative postcard writing, mentees and Forbes employees—Mentors for the Day—experienced an intergenerational exchange that included professional journey sharing, Q&A about the media industry, and bonding. This was an amazing opportunity to dream up the places we will go—and maybe even make them a reality!
