The fifth annual Potential to Power Girls Symposium will be held at BNY Mellon On June 1st, 2018. This year’s event will engage a diverse group of 200 self-identified girls and nonbinary youth from all over New York City and 50 women leaders. The symposium will unite intergenerational and multiracial voices to promote understanding, dialogue and social action on critical issues facing girls in New York City.
This year’s theme is Together We Ignite Change, emphasizing the event’s commitment to empowering diverse girls in an effort to develop their collective leadership. Symposium sessions will revolve around Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Activism, Math and more! As a result of this symposium, we hope to see an increase in attention, public discourse and funding on gender equity in New York City and across the nation. It is our hope that girls who attend the event will be inspired to become gender justice advocates in their own communities.
