Play Like a Girl has teamed up with Bridgestone Americas to shine a light on women who are breaking boundaries in a variety of diverse career fields where women are historically underrepresented. Together, we will engage inspiring women role models—from early career professionals to C-Suite executives—in Power Hour, a speed mentoring event series that inspires and encourages girls to take their rightful place in any field.

Power Hour is designed to connect women professionals from all backgrounds and walks of life with motivated middle and high school girls seeking insights about college and careers—with a specific focus on opportunities for advancement in male-dominated fields like STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Power Hour is fueled through partnerships with employee resource groups made up of women and male allies committed to driving change by empowering women and accelerating their progress into leadership at partner companies.

At this 90-minute Power Hour event, your student will experience:

  • An icebreaker or connection activity over a delicious grazing table
  • Fireside chat with a woman leader from the sponsoring company
  • Two 20-minute speed mentoring sessions guided by Play Like a Girl staff and employee volunteers.


Partner companies like Bridgestone also host small groups of students at their corporate headquarters or other facilities for Inside Look, an experiential learning and industry field trip, as an extension of their commitment to the Power Hour program. Check our event calendar for the next Inside Look.
