"We're thrilled to be sponsoring this scholarship to lift up the voices and work of young leaders. As a values-driven business, we care deeply about racial justice and the impact of our work on the world. And as a small business, this is one concrete way we can support the leaders of tomorrow," says Caitlin Rogers, Productions Director. "We hope that 'Girls Who Illustrate Awesomeness' will inspire other organizations to create new opportunities focused on reducing disparities."
