WiMN founder Laura B. Whitmore and singer/songwriter Jenna Paone share their new series of workshops called Girl In The Back Row that focus on giving girls the tools to be selective in their listening and viewing habits with the goal of empowering girls to make positive choices! Recently, they kicked off the series at Notre Dame Academy with an assembly of 500 girls, hosting their gala and sang songs from Girl, the album.

Currently they offer three energizing and empowering workshops that focus on music/social media presence, songwriting, and performance – Who Runs the World: How Music & Media Affect Girls, A Group Songwriting Co-Write Experience, and Girl, the album: Performance and Interactive Q&A.  To learn more or schedule a workshop, visit their website at: girlthealbum.com/workshops
