Strong nominees for the Strong Awards are women and girls who reside in the greater Pittsburgh region and embody the values of our organization. Strong Women, Strong Girls works creates powerful communities of women while empowering three generations of women and girls through mentorship: professional women, undergraduate college women, and young girls. Awards will be presented in four categories: Professional, Young Professional, College, and Youth.
Raising ambition and combating the dangers of low self-esteem is what Strong Women, Strong Girls (SWSG) is all about. Every day, we support positive mentoring relationships between college women and pre-adolescent girls in underserved local communities. To gain momentum locally around that mission, we established the Strong Awards, designed to celebrate the leadership and unwavering contributions of women and girls in the greater Pittsburgh region.
