Women’s History Month: Oskouian’s Work with Global G.L.O.W.
As Women’s History Month comes to a close, we want to share Ship & Shore’s President and CEO Anoosheh Oskouian’s work with Global G.L.O.W (Girls Leading Our World) as a “distinguished mentor” at the United Nations International Day of the Girl ‘Girls Speak Out’ Event in New York.
Global G.L.O.W is a non-profit organization that offers after-school programs to mentor girls to advocate for themselves and make their communities stronger. Global G.L.O.W works with over 20 countries around the world, empowering young girls to overcome barriers and positively impact their communities.
Oskouian had the opportunity to speak at this event in New York to share her personal story as an immigrant student in the U.S. to encourage girls all over the world to pursue the seemingly impossible. It is of great importance to Oskouian to empower young girls by providing them with mentors so they can “obtain opportunities they never before thought possible.” Oskouian goes on to explain, “I want these women to know that the unconscious and conscious biases that exist in the world regarding women today can be conquered, and I want to help families understand that confidence-building needs to begin at home.”
