GirlForce100 Launches in Full Force for the 2023/2024 Career Mentoring Year
A robust and focused GirlForce100 launched their scheduled programming for the 2023/2024 academic year earlier this month. This inaugural event, hosted by KPMG, was facilitated by Fawne Taylor of Code Cayman, who spoke to the group of pre-career girls on the topic of “Understanding your Digital Footprint” and highlighted the need for a strong awareness when using social media as a communication and career tool.
