Girls Leading Our World (GLOW)
Women Empowering Nations partners with schools in Tulsa, OK, Oklahoma City, OK, and Houston, TX to provide self esteem and leadership development programming to cohorts of middle school girls of color through the Girls Leading Our World Program. Through our monthly advisory curriculum, quarterly leadership sessions, and virtual component girls have access to videos, lessons, and resources aligning to personal growth, social/emotional intelligence, career development, and global awareness.
GLOW Travel Seminar
Girls' mentoring experience culminates with the opportunity to participate in a Girl Leading Our World travel seminar where they travel abroad to participate in the travel seminar and leadership conference with young women in Africa. WEN has hosted travel seminars to Senegal, Gambia, Morocco, The Netherlands, Tanzania, and Ghana in 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2018. In 2020, WEN will be expanding to South Africa. For more information on the 2020 travel seminar, please click here.
The travel seminar expands participants global view thus lighting a new path of potential outcomes for their life. Girls also develop as citizens who value diversity, challenge bias, and have a passion for continual learning through experience. The impact of the travel seminars has produced social change agents who were empowered from the exposure to lead as peer mentors, organization captains, and social justice advocates for women’s affairs.

The Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Summits have been held in The Gambia, West Africa, Tulsa, OK, Oklahoma City, OK, Houston, TX, Mwanza, Tanzania, and Accra, Ghana.
