role models women can relate to

In the spirit of National Women's History Month (in the U.S) and International Women's Day (March 8), we've decided to bring Future Friday back and make it a monthly honor program!
They're back!
Rashida Hodge - IBM
Future Friday is an honor program recognizing outstanding women who have taken enormous steps to make their dream careers a reality. Honorees provide advice about the unique barriers they've faced and have characteristics young women and girls can relate to.

Why do we feel the need to create this program before the movie comes out?

Our film follows teen girls and experiences first hand their need for role models who represent options and solutions. Girls need relatable role models (well beyond their parents, teachers and mentors) who can expand their ambitions, show them ways of fulfilling their potential, and inspire them through common qualities and interests.

Our film also interviews young women who have recently started their careers. At this age, women need role models who have fresh experiences similar to what they are now facing.

So why do we need to highlight more role models for women?

There are simply not enough young ambitious women getting the exposure they deserve. Once a month, we'll feature a woman who is a role model for a next generation of women who dream big. Please look for our next Future Friday Honoree to be announced on March 11 in social media and on our website!
