Prancing Ponies Foundation’s mission is ‘Creating Women Leaders One Girl at a Time’.
There are millions of organizations that service the ‘cradle to college’ path however, very few focus on the ‘college to career’ transition which is most critical to ensuring girls are prepared to step into corporate leadership roles as quickly as possible.
We provide 3rd year STEM girls the training to accelerate their careers into leadership positions. The training provided would normally take girls 5 – 8 years to learn on the job. We no longer want our girls to waste this time, so we train them before they graduate college on:
• How to run an affective meeting
• Preparing and give presentations
• Managing a budget and analyze a P&L
• Negotiating their salary
• …and receive monthly mentoring for the rest of their lives
In 2015, Prancing Ponies Foundation began with the goal to teach 1000 girls leadership skills by 2020, we will accomplish this goal through 4 programs:
Acceleration Workshops (Jan 2019): Held quarterly, these interactive workshops will provide our Academy graduates continuing education supporting their accelerated career growth to corporate leadership roles.
Champions Mentoring Program (Feb 2019): Allow mentors to register and provide detailed profiles for the areas in which they can help to create strong mentor/mentee relations.
3rd annual summer Leadership Acceleration Academy & Internship (June 2019): Graduates receive help with company placement, life-long mentoring and educational support.
Online Leadership Academy for high school girls (Sep 2019): This high school club takes the curriculum from our summer Academy and brings it to classrooms and after-school programs and allows us to reach thousands of underserved girls nationally.
Our dream is to see 250 Women CEOs running S&P 500 companies. We believe we can change the numbers of Women represented in leadership from a decrease of 25% in 2018 to an increase of 50% in the next 10 years.
The Prancing Ponies Academy is free to all accepted girls. This includes housing, stipends, technology, transportation, and other critical items. Support us today and watch your investment grow into a future Woman Leader!
