GIRL CONNECTED seeks to empower determined young women with a multilevel platform that provides the necessary framework towards professional success, inspiration and growth.
Girl Connected will officially launch its first membership based chapter in Toronto January 2020, with main focuses spanning across music business and administration, event production, touring, public relations, brand building, digital marketing & more. The Girl Connected Mentorship Program will provide up to 20 aspiring female professionals the chance to participate in a year-long one-on-one mentorship with an industry-giant based on their field of interest, professional ambitions and goals.
Applicants will be selected based on defining values of resiliency, integrity, authenticity and collaboration.
Once selected mentees will be required to attend quarterly meetings with their mentors where they will be able to communicate any questions or concerns about their field, discuss projects, strategy and complete appropriate evaluations. Mentees will also have the opportunity to work and share space on a weekly basis with the Girl Connected program leader to truly ensure they are provided with the tools they need to succeed. Lola Media Group CEO, and Girl Connected founder Lola Plaku, will also be available throughout the process for additional feedback, overview, and program support to all mentees.
GIRL CONNECTED EVENTS is a public platform created to offer a larger conversation about women in the entrepreneurial landscape, examining the intricate role of leadership and success.
GIRL CONNECTED EVENTS includes but is not limited to workshops, speaking engagements, industry and influencer roundtables, discussion panels, and mentorship sessions. The aim is to provide aspirational young women with advice & guidance on how to overcome challenges and where to direct their attention when it comes to achieving their dreams and attaining success.
