"Transform The Norm" Changemaker Contest

Are you sick of society’s harmful standards imposed on women? Let’s work together to transform. By enrolling in the Changemaker Contest, you will have the opportunity to work with likeminded peers and adult ally mentors to flip the script. Norms that continue to plague women today include how we define: 

 

  • Beauty: An often unfair, exclusive linear term with strict, specific body type and look 

  • Success: Incorrectly defined by perfect GPA, test scores, and college degrees

  • Leader: But with limitations to avoid being viewed or dismissed as aggressive, abrasive, bossy or loud

  • Stereotypes: Out of date and inappropriate language that belittles and objectifies women

Why Compete:

  • Turn your passion into impact: be part of the solution to make the change you want to see

  • Build your skills: develop your skills with resources provided by companies and organizations who are committed to empowering you

  • Gain valuable experiences: Win a chance to work with experts to broaden your horizon and prepare you for your future career
