A Modern and Stylish Calendar (the Perfect Gift)

We're planning to design a calendar profiling real women, early in their science and tech careers. The calendar will include:

  • Twelve inspiring profiles of women doing cool work
  • Visually stunning portraits, professionally styled and photographed
  • Fun Q&A with the models on topics that girls can connect with
  • A fresh and stylish take on women who love science and math

Why Girls Need Help

When girls reach adolescence, their confidence in science and math goes down. And since self esteem is correlated with performance in these subjects, that's a problem!

The Right Role Models for Girls Today

We all look to larger-than-life women like Jane Goodall and Marie Curie as inspiration, but we believe girls want to connect to women closer to their own age. And they'd love seeing them profiled in a stylish, cool way.

Fun Rewards

Inspire the girl in your life. Check out some of our fun rewards!

  • A calendar signed by a model
  • Have the name of the girl you love printed in the final calendar, on her birthday. Example shout outs: "Birthday of Christina Flores, future geophysicist" or "Birthday of Carrie Walsh, math and science whiz".

Risks and challenges

THE RIGHT TEAM (CHECK!)
This project requires a professional fashion photographer, a stylist, a graphic designer, and some sensible project management. We are confident that our professional experience and enthusiasm will allow us to deliver a high quality product.

THE RIGHT ROLE MODELS
We have a number of potential models lined up, but will need to find additional role models who are interested in being profiled. Please spread the word to your friends in science and tech! We would love to hear directly from those women.

RIGHT ON TIME
The biggest risk to this project is the completion date - we believe we have time to get the calendars out well in advance of Christmas, but we will let everyone know if that timeline appears to be threatened.
