Your dreams are not too crazy, your ambition is not too big, and your perceived limitations can show themselves out.

We must begin to honor our dreams and ambitions, and to see ourselves as being capable of stepping out as the founders, CEOs, visionaries, investors, board members, and creators this world needs.

In addition, there are hundreds of young people without the resources or support to act on their dreams, another reality that has fueled Dr. DeWitt’s decision to become an investor herself.

Dr. DeWitt has listened to hundreds of young women tell her they plan to be doctors, social workers, teachers, and other positions they’ve seen adults in their lives fill. Rarely do they independently use terms like “founder” or “CEO” when describing their ambitions.

Girls Equity Movement

Dr. DeWitt is passionate about providing leadership development and entrepreneurial training for young women. With the GEMs program, she’s provided both local and international programming across the United States; in London, England; and Johannesburg, South Africa in order to build entrepreneurial mindsets and tech skills, broaden emotional intelligence and leadership skills, and provide exposure to new career pathways.

Rather than waiting until they reach adulthood to finally give themselves permission to follow their dreams, Dr. DeWitt is seeking to empower and embolden young women from an early age.
