It’s Time to Represent the Real Me, Thursday, March 15, 2012
Based on popular demand, we have added a second screening of Miss Representation on March 15, 2012.
The film Miss Representation exposes how American youth are being sold the concept that women and girls’ value lies in their youth, beauty and sexuality. It’s time to break that cycle of mistruths.
Miss Representation aligns perfectly with InfluenceHer objectives to develop a comprehensive programming strategy that addresses three core program areas for girls: academic success, leadership and health. We strive to leave an indelible impact on each girl in order to position her to think smarter, reach farther and fulfill her dreams.

Our intent with showing this film to InfluenceHer women is to prepare for an exclusive showing in the spring for our high school aged InfluenceHer girls. At that event, through a panel presentation and audience discussion we hope to raise awareness of the pressures girls and women face from disparaging portrayals in the media.

InfluenceHer 2nd Annual Summit, March 11, 2011
So much has happened in the past 11 months since InfluenceHer began! The list of InfluenceHers has quadrupled, SMART girls programming has spread to all 13 Clubs, and a week-long all-girls summer camp is planned for 2011 summer for 108 girls. These achievements are just the beginning, we're plotting our course to harness the knowledge, wisdom, and life experiences of our team of InfluenceHers.
Our 2nd annual InfluenceHer Summit brought together 112 women on March 11th in order to brighten the futures of 6,200 girls! Facilitator Kimberly McKenna took the women through the day, Justice Bobbe Bridge shared the stories of the women who influenced her life, and the attendees rolled up their sleeves as a part of our 11 teams, each focused on a core area of need
InfluenceHer Inaugural Networking Session and Website Launch - December 2nd

The InfluenceHer Summit, April 23, 2010
In April, 85 of Seattle’s top women leaders united to begin a journey to help Boys & Girls Clubs of King County build targeted, world-class programming for our girls, ages 6–18. Women heard from experts like Sue Rahr, King County Sheriff, Karen Bryant, Seattle Storm CEO, and Marja Brandon, Founder of the Seattle Girls School, about the issues facing girls today.
A panel of teen girls shared their own experiences with Kimberly McKenna, a professional facilitator and long-time supporter. The women worked together in groups to brainstorm girls’ programming relating to our three core program areas: academic success, leadership, and health.
Focus Group Sessions with Club Girls, Summer 2010
This summer we spent time at our Clubs talking to our girls. In three separate focus groups this summer Club girls weighed in on the programming ideas that sprang from the InfluenceHer Summit in April. Our girls had a lot to say! They loved the idea of a girls only summer camp! “When girls are around boys they act differently. They try to get the boys’ attention. If there are no boys there you won’t be embarrassed to try a new sport or if you don’t like your bathing suit,” said Kayla, age 15. They even had their own ideas of how they would like to spend programming time. “Girls are always asking for advice going through middle school and high school. It would be nice to have an hour to talk and give each other advice,” said Jenny, age 12.
