Call for Proposals & Registration Open for Global Forum on Girls' Education® II

Nearly 1,000 educators, researchers, and authors from 23 countries came together in 2016 for the first-ever Global Forum on Girls' Education®. What began as an exchange of best practices for teaching girls became much more significant. It signaled the start of a movement -- a call to action to awaken the world to the importance of empowering girls through a single, inalienable right: access to a quality education.

NCGS and its 15 strategic partners from around the globe are eager to take the next step in making our voices heard and for educators at girls' schools to lead this conversation. Join as we stand up -- and speak up -- for girls everywhere!

Registration is now open. Click here to register today!

The Global Forum II will bring together girls' education advocates to exchange best practices and innovative approaches for academic excellence and the healthy development of girls.

We invite you to submit a proposal to present on your area of expertise. The Call for Proposals (CFP) is now open! Click here for the CFP guidelines. To access the online CFP submission form, click here.

Proposals are due by Monday, December 11, 2017.

Save the Date: Philanthropic Round Table Presented by Miss Hall's School and NCGS

Philanthropic Round Table: Engaging and Educating Girls and Women to be Strategic Philanthropists
Presented by Miss Hall's School and NCGS

The Philanthropic Round Table (PRT) was established by Miss Hall's School in 1997 to raise the level of discourse on women and philanthropy. Women today are attaining advanced degrees at higher rates and have greater resources upon which to draw. As such, they are in an increasingly powerful position to make and influence philanthropic decisions.

NCGS is proud to join Miss Hall's School as a partner in hosting the 2018 Philanthropic Round Table. You will hear from, and have opportunities to join discussion groups with thought-leaders representing educational institutions, foundations, and non-profit organizations. Together, we will strategize ways to engage girls and women in becoming life-long philanthropists.

A morning panel will be followed by small break-out discussions. Registration will open in October.
