About Us


From December 2018 until July 2021, we operated as Bainbridge Island Girl Up, part of a United Nations hosted initiative. You can check our old site here to see what we accomplished! You can also view our Timeline.

We felt we needed to make a change, so as of July 30, 2021, we are now Girls Ignited. Our mission, however, remains similar: to empower, inspire, and encourage girls and young women to be changemakers. Of any age. From anywhere. 

For now, we'll focus on amplifying the millions of girls whose passions have been ignited. Their stories and efforts will no doubt inspire you. We will make strategic decisions about where it's best to lead, follow, or partner with like-minded organizations and initiatives. 


If you're a Girl Ignited or know of one, we want to hear about it!

Founder: Merrill Keating
