Future Ready Leadership

By Jennifer Yu Cheng

Women remain underrepresented at management levels across sectors and industries. At JYC Girls Impact Foundation, we want to level the playing field by building a strong pipeline of future ready girls who are both inspired and equipped to lead. By equipping teenage girls with comprehensive future ready resources – education access, leadership development, and STEM exposure and tech skills, we strive to inspire and empower them to become the next generation of leaders.

Future ready leadership is also synonymous with confidence, goalsetting, communication, collaboration and recognizing inherent talents. By imparting core leadership values and skills through signature programmes and events featuring women trailblazers from every field, we hope to position teen girls to become leaders of their lives: proactive decision makers, who make a positive, lasting impact in everything they do.

By 2030, some 400-800 million jobs could be lost to automation[1]Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained (McKinsey). Our rapidly changing world needs people who are versed in the power and versatility of technology and who are curious, imaginative, deeply collaborative and undaunted by risk and complexity.

At JYCGIF, we believe that providing teenage girls with rich STEM learning opportunities and exposure to women trailblazers with STEM backgrounds will empower them to approach every possible career path as future ready leaders.

We also believe that all girls possess the grit, talent and courage to lead – they just need help unlocking them! Creating the next generation of future ready leaders is the cornerstone to effecting tangible change in girls’ lives and to healthier communities and stronger economies everywhere.
