Girl Code is a social enterprise that is dedicated to empowering women and girls by creating a supportive community that dismantles harmful systems that prevent women from connecting with each other. Our business model is based on a fundamental belief that without a strong community, individuals may struggle to achieve their full potential, and the lack of social connection can have harmful consequences for one's well-being and success.
We offer a variety of services, including community building events, media, and curriculum that are funneled through our Girl C.O.D.E. framework, which stands for Connection, Observation, Disruption, and Education. Our events are designed to create a safe and inclusive space where women and girls can come together to network, share their experiences, and find support. Our media platform provides access to a wealth of resources, including our popular rulebook, the Girl Code book, which offers guidance on a wide range of topics from self-care, God, mental health, career development, and healthy relationships.
At Girl Code, we strive to create an inclusive community where all women and girls can feel welcomed and supported. While we value diversity and inclusion across all races, cultures, and identities, we have a particular focus on empowering and uplifting black and brown communities. We believe that by centering the experiences and voices of these communities, we can create real change and make a positive impact in the lives of those who have historically been marginalized and excluded.
In summary, Girl Code is a social enterprise that provides a range of services to empower women and girls by creating a supportive community that dismantles harmful systems. Our goal is to create a world where women support and uplift each other, without fear of competition or violence, and where girls can truly value each other, become their sister's keeper, and create true change in the world because there is strength in numbers.

How we got started
In the year of 2021, a young girl by the name of Ma'Khia Bryant, who was only 16 years of age, was unfortunately killed by a police officer. This occurred after she was involved in a physical altercation, which she had called the police about prior to the event. Due to her mishandling of the situation, she was perceived as the aggressor and the police used lethal force. In light of this tragedy, I felt compelled to take action by creating media that highlights the detrimental effects of female rivalry. My efforts led to an overwhelming response, which motivated me to spend the rest of the year organizing community "Girl Talks" throughout Ohio. These events provided a safe space for women and girls to connect with one another, share their experiences, and collaborate on solutions to combat the negative aspects of girl culture. Our goal is to continue spreading this message of love and sisterhood globally through our Girl Talks, You Can Sit With Us events, and programming.
