Inspiring young women

The KD Hall Foundation honored Women’s History Month by having empowering and intimate conversations with girls at Echo Glen Children’s Juvenile Center, Evergreen High School and at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

The KD Hall Foundation was founded in 2014 when Kakela Hall and her husband found out they were expecting a baby girl. Upon discovering this, they realized odds were stacked against her just for being a girl as only 4.6 percent of CEOs in fortune 500 companies are women, according to the KD Hall Foundation website.

The goal of the foundation is to work to advance the future workforce for young adults with an emphasis on women and young girls, the website said.

Since this month is Women’s History Month, Hall decided to take to different institutions and help young women though their journey in life, a press release from the foundation said.

The KD Hall team is taking an intimate approach to these issues with small intensive workshops for girls ages 12-21. These workshops include Anxiety 101, Human Sex Trafficking, The Mother/Daughter and Father/Daughter Relationship, Stopping the School to Prison Pipeline, Confidence 101, Suicide Prevention, and Entrepreneurship and Economic Development,” the release continued.

So far, the foundation has made its way Echo Glen and Evergreen High School.

The next and last stop for the foundation will take place on March 30 at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
