Lady to Lady is an Obvi initiative for high school girls inspired by the online community, Obvi We’re The Ladies. Through writing workshops and other live programming, Lady to Lady brings to life the power of self-exploration, community-building, and self-expression.
Our program is designed for femme-identified high school students, and specifically for underclassmen and upperclassmen separately. Lady to Lady workshops provide examples of successful introspective practices to encourage young women to explore their interests, tap into available resources, and think critically about their experiences and environments and how they impact their identities.
During a Lady to Lady workshop we will facilitate healthy conversations between these women, demonstrating the value of peer-to-peer relationships and introducing the significance of intersecting issues. We will share our belief that learning and personal growth are not linear, they are cyclical.
When students leave the Lady to Lady program, they will be equipped with communication tools and a platform from which they can confidently share their experiences and express their opinions in productive and meaningful ways. They will know the value of their voice.
