The Girl Up Leadership Summit brought more than 400 passionate youth advocates from around the world to Washington, D.C. for three jam-packed days. These young change-makers participated in leadership training, learned from influential speakers and global leaders, engaged in skills-based workshops, and led an official lobby day on Capitol Hill.
Through mentorship by Girl Up experts, celebrity champions, women trailblazers, and gender equality experts, Summit participants gained core leadership skills, trained in community-building and advocacy, and experienced interacting with members of Congress on Capitol Hill. The Summit strives to empower, educate and embolden the potential of every youth leader there.
