Call for Proposals: New York City

Proposal Deadline: November 16, 2018

We invite you to share your knowledge and expertise at the Educating Girls Symposium by developing an interactive and engaging presentation highlighting your work in girls’ schools. This is a valuable opportunity to contribute to the expanding portfolio of best practices about teaching girls and to help facilitate conversations among peers and colleagues.


The Educating Girls Symposium audience includes heads of school, administrators, faculty, counselors, and educational professionals from both all-girls and coed schools that serve PK-12th grade students primarily in the state of New York (although attendees from across the U.S., Canada, and abroad may also be present).

Session Format

Each workshop will be 50 minutes in length and must include opportunities for interaction and Q&A. There may be up to four (4) facilitators per session.*

*Special consideration will be given to proposals that include multiple presenters from different schools in a panel discussion or other collaborative presentation format.

Evaluation Criteria

  • Alignment with conference topic
  • Potential to attract and engage professionals who work with girls PK-12 in and out of school settings both formally or informally
  • Opportunities for attendee involvement and interaction
  • Examples, case studies, practical tools or models that can be applied immediately back in the home classroom
