Do love supporting strong girls and women? Do you work with middle school girls, or high school girls? Women's Herstory Month may be nearing its end but that does not mean we have to stop celebrating the girls and women in our lives and communities.
Please join the Santa Clara County Office of Women's Policy as we partner with American Association of University Women (AAUW) San José to host the 2013 Strong Girls Strong Women Leadership Conference on Saturday, May 4, 2013.
Date: Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 8:00am to 1:30pm
Location: School of Arts and Culture at the Mexican Heritage Plaza at 1700 Alum Rock Ave, San José, California 95116.
This incredible day includes a private film screening of award-winning documentary MissRepresentation, four different leadership tracks for high school girls and a special track for Strong Women.
Workshop topics focus on money matters, media literacy, healthy body image, advocacy, and college-going culture.
We encourage all high school girls, middle school girls (must be accompanied by an adult), all mothers, and advocates for women and girls empowerment to participate :-)
Hurry, and register NOW! Registration is FREE, and RSVP is required: http://bit.ly/YFt1wR
There is complimentary breakfast and lunch. Lunch will feature local leaders and elected representatives.
Devanshi Patel (Stanford, 2014), star of MissRepresentation, will be moderating our panel on Strong Girls = Strong Community, featuring local girl leaders from Latina Coalition YLTLP, Girls Scouts, and Girls for a Change.
Share this on Facebook. Please share this video (public service announcement - PSA - by yours truly) and event with your friends! I am helping the SCC Office of Women's Policy do outreach, and we thank you your partnership and support to advance the girls and women leadership.
We look forward to seeing you there.
