Malverne High School played host last week to a collaborative effort with students from Uniondale as part of the ongoing Girls Policy Network initiative. This collaborative venture is centered on empowering women students to put their minds together and collaborate on finding policy-based solutions that will work towards improving the issues that they see in the areas they live in. various aspects of their communities.
And who could possibly lead a workshop on women's policy more effectively than women actively shaping policy? Nassau County Legislator Siela Bynoe, and a representative from the office of Assemblywoman Taylor Darling, who took a break from their Albany meeting to engage with the students via Facetime, not only participated in the student workshop but also offered valuable guidance as the students worked on formulating their presentations.
“Empowering girls today means shaping the leaders of tomorrow,” Assemblywoman Taylor Darling told the Herald about the event. “The Girls Policy Workshop provides a platform where their voices are not just heard, but valued and acted upon, fostering a brighter, more inclusive future for all. Through mentorship, education, and advocacy — we empower girls to reach their full potential and become catalysts for positive change in their communities and beyond.”
