From July 13-15, join Girl Up in Washington, D.C., for the fourth annual Girl Up Leadership Summit! Registration is now open for this unique opportunity to build your leadership and advocacy skills while connecting with young leaders from across the country and around the world.
This year, the Leadership Summit will be bigger and better than ever with renowned speakers, engaging workshops, and educational leadership and advocacy trainings. Participants will get an inside look at the challenges that impact the lives of adolescent girls in different parts of the world, and will receive hands-on advocacy experience with a day on Capitol Hill.
Over the years, the Girl Up Leadership Summit has attracted impressive thought leaders, businesswomen, and celebrities to share their insights on leadership, activism, and girls’ empowerment. Among last year’s speakers were Ambassador Catherine Russell, Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues; Anne Fullenwider, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire magazine; Monique Coleman, actress and activist; and many other inspiring individuals who believe in the power of girls.
Join Girl Up to stand up, speak up, and rise up for girls everywhere. Learn more about the event and register today! Early bird registration ends May 22.
