On Tuesday, over 60 young women from Ottawa-area high schools gathered at Carleton University for the 2nd annual Girls Aloud – Youth Empowerment, a day designed to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.

In the afternoon, students put the knowledge they gained to practice during a business development challenge to design a business idea and brand with the support of the entrepreneurs they heard from during the morning session.
The Sprott School of Business is a proud sponsor of Girls Aloud – Youth Empowerment, a non-profit event that provides educational and professional pathways for young women considering post-secondary studies and a career in business and entrepreneurship. Organized by Canada eSchool and Entrepreneurship Ottawa (EO), Girls Aloud – Youth Empowerment was created by Ottawa teen Brianna Dabrowski.
