To Advance the Needs & Potential of Girls & Young Women
In Solidarity has been created as more than a conference. It has been designed as an opportunity to connect, to be moved and energized, and to strategize together with young women as leaders for change. We are excited about the amazing speakers you will hear at In Solidarity.
In Solidary will provide a diverse array of opportunities to learn and connect through Deep Dive Learning, Innovation in Motion and A Call to Solidarity sessions, along with Front Porch Conversations. In addition the Self Care Room and the Un Exhibit Hall will be open to provide opportunities for respite and inspiration throughout the event.
