(Big Hairy Audacious Goal)
To change the landscape of leadership.
Girls are twice as likely as boys to worry that leadership roles will make them seem bossy? And that between elementary and high school, a girl’s self-esteem drops 3.5 times more than boys?
Women are more like than men to suffer from imposter syndrome (phenomenon where individuals are plagued with self doubt). Despite all external evidence that they are competent, women still feel like they are a fraud.
A study showed that replacing a woman’s name with a man’s on a resume can increase her ‘worthiness of hire’ by 60%.
Christina Meade – Nerdy Girl Success™ Founder
I spent 16 years in education as a teacher, trainer and curriculum writer. What I enjoyed most about my career was being a problem solver and helping others. In 2011, I stepped out on faith and entered the business world. I quickly caught the entrepreneurial bug! After working with my husband to launch his successful videography business, I decided to follow my passion to educate, empower and inspire women and girls.
The limiting beliefs of others can have a huge impact on what we believe about our own abilities. All it takes is one person believing in you and saying ‘you can do it’. My mission is to bring that encouragement to women and girls by helping them develop into strong leaders and businesswomen.
Behind every successful woman is a tribe of successful women who have her back.
Nobody can do it alone. Here’s the team of bad ass boss babes who make Nerdy Girl Success™ possible. Definitely not the complete list (not by a long shot) but some of the first to step up.
