“It’s good to be a girl in this world today. I like being a girl because I can speak for myself. I can stand up for myself. Being a girl makes me strong”~Mytha, age 6


Girls Incorporated, the nonprofit organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold and the oldest girl-centered organization in the United States, is delighted to announce that First Lady Michelle Obama has agreed to serve as the organization’s Honorary Board Chair.

In this role, Mrs. Obama will lend her support to the ongoing work of Girls Inc., particularly around creating opportunities and resources for girls to learn and grow, to navigate the unique challenges they face growing up, and to discover their potential as leaders with the courage and vision to change the world.

In her short tenure as First Lady, Mrs. Obama has demonstrated her ability to speak to our nation’s challenges with sensitivity and depth. Her new campaign on childhood obesity, Let’s Move!, will improve the well-being of girls, and will complement and bolster efforts to empower girls in creating a healthy society.

It is crucial to provide girls with the resources and role models to encourage them to share their voices, dream big, and envision themselves as tomorrow’s leaders,” said Joyce M. Roché, President & Chief Executive Officer of Girls Inc. “Mrs. Obama has achieved at the highest levels of education and law and demonstrates a heartfelt commitment to ensuring that all of our nation’s children have the opportunity to realize their full potential. We greatly look forward to the honor of working with her on issues that affect girls, their families, and their communities.”

Exposing our young people to new ideas, introducing them to the larger world beyond their own life experiences, and inspiring them to become the leaders of tomorrow is of paramount importance and I am pleased to serve as Honorary Board Chair of Girls Inc.,” said First Lady Michelle Obama.

Mrs. Obama is the tenth First Lady to serve in this role since 1953, when First Lady Mamie Eisenhower became the first Honorary Board Chair of Girls Inc.
