Girls Global Summit 2020
February 15, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Hosted by Women’s Global Connection, the Sat., Feb. 15 summit is the most formative female/youth-led experience in San Antonio. Focused on what it means to be a global citizen, this fun, annual intergenerational event expands horizons by tackling issues facing girls and women around the globe. Moms, daughters, business women, leaders, friends – everyone is invited! Up to 400 middle and high school girls are expected.
The summit explores the question: What if girls were given the message early, through relational, hands-on leadership training and mentoring, that their ideas and skills have an essential place in our public sphere? This kind of critical empowerment training holds that knowing about leadership is one thing; know-how, through practice and repetition, is another. The event centers on the Global Goals for Sustainable Development set by the United Nations and will result in a WGC Global Girls Bill of Rights to be presented to the San Antonio City Council.
All are invited – we welcome every age, sex, race, ethnicity, culture, immigration status, sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.
Tickets are $10 (lunch included) and available at this link: https://secure.givelively.org/event/womens-global-connection-of-san-antonio/2020-wgc-girls-global-summit
