With the support of Serge, the We Inspire Girls (WIG) movement is seemingly growing faster and stronger than ever.

The conglomerate, conceptualised by Cortia Bingham McKenzie and geared at nurturing and empowering females in Jamaica and the Caribbean, has added a new arm – inspiring young women and girls.

The WIG team took their initiative to the schools and on Friday, March 15, they embarked on the St James High School in Montego Bay, to talk vision boarding.

The workshop, sponsored by Serge, was as well-attended as it was lively and interactive – instructing over 100 enthusiastic high school girls – students aged between 12 and 16 years old.

Cortia Bingham McKenzie, the driving force behind We Inspire Girls, expressed gratitude to Serge for their sponsorship.

She emphasised the importance of empowering girls to carve their paths, stating that ‘…girls are embracing the mindset of wealth and forging their futures, rather than relying on others’.

Seprod Group Marketing Manager Dr Debbian Spence-Minott detailed the order of the day. She said ‘one of the key messages we imparted today was to identify what you want to accomplish in the next five years and what obstacles might hinder you…write them down and ensure you remind yourself every day that you are working towards those goals.’

This feature of self-development resonated with the young ladies and Spence-Minott – an educator herself – identified that the girls were committed to holding themselves accountable, even if it meant overcoming their barriers.

The We Inspire Girls High School Tour is ongoing and is expected to take over schools across the island during the rest of the Easter term.

Cortia Bingham McKenzie’s excitement was two-pronged. She’s pleased with the future developments of the girls and the plans in the pipeline for this youth arm of her women’s initiative.

‘We’ve witnessed numerous transformative moments, and we eagerly anticipate extending this empowerment to even more young women in other schools.’
