NCGS Annual Conference 2013

NCGS Annual Conference Logo

The NCGS 2013 Annual Conference, Launching Future Leaders: Preparing Today's Girls to Shape Tomorrow's World, was at Dana Hall School in Wellesley, MA, June 24 - 26, 2013.

Launching Future Leaders provided 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 addressed how to engage girls in these and other sectors to leverage their voices as leaders most effectively now and into the future.


I love the ideas, the people, the atmosphere. NCGS provides great stewardship for all of us in girls' schools. I love the feeling of empowerment, the ways in which people share so openly.
