Saying Hi!

Welcome to WOWsdom!, where the WOW of young girls meets the wisdom of women. WOWsdom! brings together girls and women of all backgrounds, education levels, and interests with a series of letters to their former selves and practical advice from experts in everything from social media to health to personal finance. It started with a Kickstarter, backed by women, men, and girls who believed in our mission and the power of our movement. We know that when we live together and learn together, we will ultimately lead together—WOWsdom! is the first step to making that dream a reality.

Generation WOW was born from a belief that when women and girls gather, magic happens. It all started at our Generation W event in 2012, when seven fantastic young women took the stage to share with the older generation what was important to them and what they needed to succeed. Generation WOW is the place for young girls to learn about the positive and the possible of life, where the leaders of today meet the leaders of tomorrow and develop special relationships that change lives.
