Who We Are

Resonate teaches leadership skills to women and girls through a training program rooted in storytelling. The confidence gained from developing a personal story, as well as the ability to articulate it eloquently, are essential tools for emerging female leaders.

To cultivate more female leaders, women need access to education and financial programs—the benefits provided by those services are necessary for the betterment of women’s lives and continued economic growth. In order to see accelerated progress toward closing gender equality gaps, programs that provide women with skills and services must also focus on confidence, agency, and leadership.

Resonate partners with organizations focused on women’s skill building and increases their capacity by incorporating narrative-based leadership training into existing programming. Harnessing the power of storytelling will allow women and girls to leverage their knowledge and skills to create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
