Research shows that when females make and control income, they reinvest in their families and communities first, positively impacting health, education, and economic opportunity for those around them.

Research also shows that having women in leadership roles means organizations perform better financially, and benefit from positive organizational climates that enhance talent retention and performance, increased innovation and collective intelligence, and improved organizational reputation through corporate social responsibility.

At SASI, we know it is critical that girls and women exercise their creative minds and maintain the confidence to leverage their interests, develop their ideas, and cultivate and celebrate their unique talents and abilities. The more they believe in themselves and are equipped with the tools to create meaningful impact as innovators and entrepreneurs – the more powerful they will be as leaders who positively shape their futures and our world.

Why focus on innovation and entrepreneurship?

Females often approach entrepreneurship from a place of creativity, purpose, connection, and joy, desiring wealth as a by-product of our efforts. Perhaps because of this, many female owned companies are in industries where profit and growth opportunities are lower. This, according to the World Bank, combined with a lack of access to knowledge resources, role models and mentors, can disadvantage female entrepreneurs from the start. From a corporate perspective, women often opt-out of leadership roles they see as requiring them to sacrifice family, creativity, or purpose, removing a massive pool of talent that is proven to help organizations thrive.

SASI is dedicated to addressing these disadvantages by connecting girls and women with each other, with mentors and role models, and equipping them with the knowledge and skills to understand and celebrate their worth, develop their ideas, and shape our world as innovative, entrepreneurial leaders.

So how do we do it?

Woven into each SASI experience is a journey in discovering, exploring and embracing our individual SASI – our unique soulful-authentic-strong-inspiring power. SASI is a tool to align action with purpose, and connect with others in meaningful ways: each time a new connection is made, creativity flows, innovation occurs and society shifts. When you harness your SASI, and support others in harnessing theirs, you power the choices and actions that drive success, positively impacting your personal and professional growth, your family, your work, and ultimately the world.

Applying this power to entrepreneurial endeavors is like adding oxygen to a fire! As we celebrate our passions as opportunities to create wealth, we promote lifelong personal and leadership growth, ignite financial independence, and lead change that shapes our world.

Our programs give girls and women the tools and confidence to do just this: harness their passion and purpose, create economic opportunity, and drive innovation as leaders of change.
