What is the Dream Gap?
Research shows that starting at age 5, many girls develop self-limiting beliefs and begin to think they're not as smart and capable as boys. They stop believing their gender can do or be anything. This is called the Dream Gap, and to help close it, Barbie launched the Dream Gap Project in 2018. This ongoing global initiative gives girls the resources and support they need to continue believing in themselves.
All ticket sales from the Barbie You Can Be Anything Festival will be donated to the Dream Gap Project, which is committed to inspiring limitless potential in every girl.*
