Creating Opportunity from Chaos: Reimagining Education, Equality, and Community through Leadership
October 13, 2020 - Virtual Event • 11:00am - 12:15pm EDT
As every organization strives to determine the best path forward for maintaining and supporting girls' education, life skills and livelihoods, we are excited to offer you the opportunity to join several young women and men who "on the ground" who are taking action and creating community change, catalyzed by the pandemic. These young men and women will offer us lessons and guidance to make education, equality, and leadership a reality they can thrive in
While numerous panels to date have analyzed the challenges girls - and especially adolescent girls - face, this panel offers you an interactive dialog with young girls and women living the challenges and rising in spite of them. They will showcase their leadership, their innovations, and their actions for creating change. Together we will learn from these young leaders what it takes to respond to a crisis, what creative solutions they have devised and how they are addressing issues of equity. The panel will point to a way forward by looking at what role each of us can play to sustain youth empowerment and leadership.
