We are a 501(c)3 that provides multimedia resources and education about amazing women of history.
Gal’s Guide mission is to build an independent women’s history library and research center in the United States to preserve, collect, share and champion women’s achievements and lessons learned. We will act as a catalyst to creators who utilize our resources to guide others to these amazing role models who have been waiting in the shadows of history for too long.

Meetings: Once a month we gathered for an educational meeting with a speaker, a set topic, and discussion.
Uhura Training Academy: Gal’s Guide organized 16 hours of programming for Starbase Indy 2018. Creating the fun and adventurous theme of Uhura Training Academy with programs like “The Life and Legacy of Nichelle Nichols” and “Secret Codes,” we merged STEM subjects with a Star Trek theme provided high-quality learning programs for all ages.
