Today’s girls and young women inhabit a world where bullying, sexualized media messages, self-destructive behaviors and other threats can destroy their adolescence and derail their futures.
Join more than 200 practitioners, who work closely with girls, at our Third Annual Girls Symposium to learn strategies and best practices to further prepare you in helping girls develop the confidence and necessary coping skills to contend with some of today’s most pressing challenges.
Attendees will experience expert-led presentations and workshops specially designed to help today's girls and young women; you will also hear from girls on what is and isn’t working.
You’ll learn strategies you can apply to help girls in the following areas:
- Leadership & Self-Advocacy
- Social Media & Media Literacy
- Body Image
- Empowering Girls Through Language
- Being an Upstander Versus a Bystander
