Organizational Values

Supported Independence

Supported Independence

We celebrate the agency of girls and our internal teams to forge their own paths – all while providing structure and guidance to help them succeed.

Dynamic Success

Dynamic Success

Success isn’t one static idea or destination. We are always evolving our definition of success to meet the moment – and empower every girl to do the same for herself.

Curated Connection

Curated Connection

We are masterful connectors. We bring the right people together in the right spaces (whether IRL or online) to share ideas, give and get authentic support, and make meaningful impact.

Equal Possibility

Equal Possibility

We believe that all ideas, paths, and destinations deserve the opportunity to come true. That’s why we provide a solid foundation, rooted in equitable access, for our community of all girls to create and own their unique journeys.

Contagious Sparkle

Contagious Sparkle

Our passion for our dreams and our girls’ dreams translates to our unmistakable and catching Step Up energy. From events to internal meetings: we’re inspired and energized, making others feel the same way.
