Think F.A.S.T.E.R 2018

Think FASTER is a daylong convening that brings together high school and college girls from New Jersey focuses on offering strategies for how girls can succeed in Finance, Arts, Science, Technology, Engineering and Research.


We’ll bring together 150 girl participants to meet with and learn from high-level executives from each of these fields.


Each of these women has been specifically selected because their narratives mirror the girls we serve. Through their dedication to leadership, commitment to justice and community, they have all succeeded.
