Our BHAG

Change the landscape of leadership.

(Big Hairy Audacious Goal) 

Our Why

Did You Know

  • Girls are twice as likely as boys to worry that leadership roles will make them seem bossy.
  • 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%.

What We Do

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works primarily with teen and preteen girls educating and encouraging them in the pursuit of business and political leadership positions.

We deliver after school programs as well as summer camp programs that help girls develop and strengthen their self-confidence, leadership skills and learn how business and local governments work.

Who We Are

Christina Meade - Founder & Executive Director

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.
