E-School Team

We embody the belief that all of our young women have the possibility of leading this world and developing solutions to our challenges today and tomorrow. We are focused on inspiring our E-School Entrepreneurs to constantly test their limits and always be at their best.

Allison Wright

Founder & Executive Director

While women are active members of the workforce, few hold senior leadership positions. Allison Wright saw this as an opportunity to effect change and develop women at a younger age. Thus, in 2014, E-School for Girls was created with the help of social impact partners. Its mission is to support leadership and entrepreneurship for women.
