See the Girl Summit 2023


OCTOBER 26-27, 2023

We’re pleased to welcome dynamic experts and powerful speakers from across the country to build community and introduce innovative programming, advocacy, and research that challenges individuals to shift how they respond to girls.

Collaborate with professionals and community advocates from across the country from fields including: juvenile justice, mental health, advocacy, education, healthcare, child welfare, students, research, philanthropy, and community activism.

“The summit is really formatted to allow you to have more of an intimate interaction with the presenters, in addition to being able to dig deeper into the work that we do.”
