The 2019 Girls' Summit encourages girls to be strong, smart, and bold through the activities they will participate in. These activities range from economic literacy, media literacy, career exploration, and sports/physical activity. The Girls' Summit event will be held on Saturday April 13th, 2019 at the SUNY ESF located at 1 FORESTRY DR, SYRACUSE, NY 13210(GPS: 1000 IRVING AVE. SYRACUSE, NY) from 8:30 am to 3:45pm.
Girls' Summit is organized by Girls Inc. at the YWCA in collaboration with ESF, Syracuse University, Syracuse University's STEP (Science, Technology Entry Program), and New York State CSTEP (Collegiate Science & Technology Entry Program). Participants will attend hands-on workshops about a variety of STEM topics throughout the day and a panel discussion about the high school-to-college transition will close the day.
This event aims to (1) spark the spirit, trigger the imagination and encourage young women to consider new and exciting career opportunities; (2) increase a girl's interest in math, science and technology and in persistence with school; (3) provide girls with opportunities to meet and form personal contacts with women working in non- traditional fields; and (4) provide hands-on learning about alternative careers in a format that is committed to benefiting girls of all ethnicities, races, religions, abilities, and backgrounds.
