And . . . we’re off! GSCCC is attending G.I.R.L. 2017 in Columbus, Ohio this week, which is expected to draw more than 10,000 girls and women! The event is for every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ who wants to stand up, take charge, and change the world.
This mega-event is taking place October 6–8, and occurs every three years. Women leaders with a wide range of expertise will talk about the issues facing girls today and the importance of their leadership development. Accomplished public figures—including Chelsea Clinton, Barbara Pierce Bush, Gabby Douglas, Mae Jemison and more—will drive conversations with female leaders from organizations such as Facebook, Instagram, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, NASA, and AT&T.
Girl-led and designed for all girls, the event will also feature young stars and entrepreneurs, such as Angelica Hale and Caly Bevier from America’s Got Talent; Gabby Frost, founder of the Buddy Project; and Marley Dias, creator of #1000BlackGirlBooks.
