Who we are.
We are you. We are moms, aunts, sisters, daughters, wives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and dreamers. We believe in the power of education, empowerment, and positive experiences. We wear many different hats and yet there is one constant among us all... We are warriors for our next generations of women!
GLAM (Girls Leadership Academy Meetup) was founded by iTalent Digital’s CEO, Renée La Londe, who knows first hand how life-changing a program like GLAM can be. When she was 13 years old, her recently widowed mother made a financial sacrifice to scrape together enough money to send her to a summer coding camp. This watershed experience set her on the path to a successful career in tech. It is also the reason GLAM is always offered for free – so girls from any socio-economic background can participate. Now in its fifth year, GLAM has earned two awards from The Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, Best Event of the Year 2016 (Silver) and Best Community Involvement Program of the Year 2018 (Gold), and was also the finalist for E-Skills Initiative of the Year from Women in IT Awards (2019).
We believe all girls can embrace who they are, have confidence in their future, and can change the world.
To equip girls across the globe with the skills and confidence to seek leadership roles, feel power within their voice, and create positive change in the world.
Renée La Londe,
Founder and CEO, iTalent Digital
We envision a world where all girls and young women feel empowered and supported to reach their fullest potential, regardless of socio-economic circumstances.
