The purpose of the See the Girl Summit is to challenge participants to see how they can shift and shape the ways in which girls are treated, elevate the voices of girls, and those who identify as female, through research, advocacy and programming. Participants include juvenile justice professionals, mental health professionals, advocates, education system, child welfare system, students, health care professionals, researchers, philanthropists, parents/caregivers, volunteers, and concerned citizens. The summit is building community through highlighting innovative programming, advocacy, and research that challenges individuals to shift how they respond to girls.
Note, this Summit offers CEUs for social work, psychology, mental health, and occupational therapy. If you need CEUs outside of these areas, you can submit your certificate to your governing body. You must attend the entire summit to receive CEUs.
The 2019 summit will be Oct 24-25th, save the date!
