This qualitative study focuses on looking at how GirlVentures’—a non-profit with the purpose of empowering adolescent girls to develop self confidence and leadership skills—women of color experience support within and from the organization. An analysis of the organization’s overall history, functioning, culture, and aspects of experience for participants and employees of color will be obtained from interviews, coupled with my personal experience within the organization. An analysis of strengths and areas of growth for the organization will be worked in through out the study. This study hopes to assess and contribute to a higher quality of support for women of color involved with this organization in the future.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
