Raise Her Voice (Formerly #LEADLIKEAGIRL)

The National Center for Girls' Leadership at Stuart rose to prominence across the United States in 2017 with the #LEADLIKEAGIRL conference. #LEADLIKEAGIRL: A Conference for Risk-Takers and Changemakers is a one-day event on the campus of Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart for girls in K-12, parents, educators and mentors. First held in 2017, #LEADLIKEAGIRL is designed to showcase and inspire girls’ confidence and creativity in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), entrepreneurism, finance and leadership. 

The impact of #LEADLIKEAGIRL both in the local Princeton, NJ area and throughout the United States, affirmed the need for girls to have access to programming to foster their leadership development and career aspirations. Since the launch of the one-day conference, the National Center for Girls' Leadership at Stuart has hosted additional #LEADLIKEAGIRL workshops and camps to provide year-long programming to girls in grades K-12 and their families. It was at this time, under the leadership of director Bonnie Milecki, who joined Stuart in 2020, that the #LEADLIKEAGIRL brand would go through its own development to become Raise Her Voice.
