100 Girls Take The Lead at G.I.R.L. Conference 2018

G.I.R.L. Conference News Feature

We're still raving about G.I.R.L. Conference 2018!

In its second year, our unique leadership development conference for middle and high school girls delivered a day of skill-building, self-reflection, leadership development, and inspiration. Featuring two keynote speeches, a lunch-and-learn panel, and twelve interactive workshops delivered by 20 local leaders (including internationally-renowned author and activist Jes Baker) G.I.R.L. Conference 2018 ignited the go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader in over 100 girls from across Southern Arizona.

From learning to prep for a backpacking trip in desert conditions and practicing self-defense techniques to honest conversations around mental health, self-esteem, and body image, each workshop encouraged girls to leave their comfort zones behind and develop new skills across a broad range of topics, including entrepreneurship, STEM, life skills, the outdoors, and healthy living.
