Who We Are
Girls' Leadership Project

Gumption

Gumption is the strength of mind and character to take calculated risks, seek out challenges, and learn and grow from failure.

It requires one to:

● take the risks necessary to create change
● overcome disappointment, boredom, and failure to reach goals
● practice self-development through reflection
● distinguish the pursuit of one’s best self from the pressure for perfection
● assume responsibility for outcomes of decisions and actions
● employ a network of people and resources
The Girls’ Leadership Project (GLP) at Miss Hall's School is the ongoing exploration of what best helps girls become powerful, undeterred agents of their own futures. Find out more...
