In celebration of our 40th anniversary and the United Nations International Day of the Girl Child, our conference aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while also promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights. 

Our 2nd Annual WE LEAD: Empowering Our Girls Conference will be an unforgettable celebration focused on inspiring attendees (students, corporate/community leaders, mentors, volunteers, and local politicians) to work to create a better world for girls, women and everyone. This event will be a fun-filled day with music, raffles, food, and performances; in addition to enlightening and motivating, with messages from women on the challenges they faced in different industries and how they pushed past them. 

The day will culminate with the “Gems Among Us” Awards Presentation, honoring outstanding individuals and organizations for their commitment to uplifting and empowering our girls.
