GirlsLEAD Summit 2018

We look forward to you joining us for the GirlsLEAD Summit in Washington, DC on March 9, 2018 at the University of the District of Columbia!

Hosted by the Young Women’s Advisory Council of the Young Women’s Initiative at the Washington Area Women’s Foundation, the Summit will be an opportunity for girls between the ages of 12-24 residing in the District of Columbia to learn, connect, gain valuable skills and lift their voices on the issues that are important to them and impact their communities and neighborhoods.

At the Summit, girls will have the opportunity to hear from trailblazing leaders like Elaine Welteroth, former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue, who will open the summit and many other young people that are doing extraordinary things to make change and a difference across the country.
