2019 In Solidarity Speakers & Panelists

We Must Be United

To Advance the Needs & Potential of Girls & Young Women

In Solidarity is more than a conference. It’s an opportunity to connect; to be moved & energized; and, to strategize together with young women as leaders for change.

In Solidarity provides a diverse array of opportunities to learn and connect through Deep Dive Learning and Innovation in Motion sessions, and Pre-Conference Intensives. A Self-Care Room, Un-Exhibit Hall, Youth Lounge, and Professional and Organizational Development Center are also available throughout the event to take a moment to yourself, network, and celebrate girls, young women, and gender nonconforming youth.
