Girls who run…for office


Recorded by the International Coalition of Girls’ Schools. Host Trudy Hall invites Julie Jorritsma, Acting Principal, and Winifred Hanson, Head of Academic Engagement, from Canberra Girls Grammar School to discuss a program designed to ensure girls understand and engage in the political realm. They offer lessons learned, practical advice and a savvy understanding of the skills girls need to successfully enter the political fray. They take the responsibility for preparing girls for a life of service very seriously; they want girls to be able to “open the door, enter the room, and join the conversation.”
