NCGS Annual Conference 2013
The NCGS 2013 Annual Conference, Launching Future Leaders: Preparing Today's Girls to Shape Tomorrow's World, will be held at Dana Hall School in Wellesley, MA. The conference will be held on Monday afternoon, June 24, 2013 through Wednesday morning, June 26, 2013.
Launching Future Leaders will provide educators with strategies to develop girls with the confidence, skills and convictions to become the next generation of female leaders. With a focus on political and economic leadership, two areas where women continue to be underrepresented, we will address how to engage girls in these and other sectors to leverage their voices as leaders most effectively now and into the future.
