2017 All About Girls Summit

The inaugural All About Girls Summit convened more than 650 extraordinary leaders from across the country to collaborate on elevating the voices of girls and to commemorate PACE’s 30th anniversary of serving girls at the greatest moment of need. With an abundant agenda of nationally renowned speakers, 20 breakout sessions and endless opportunities for networking, attendees were educated, inspired and equipped with a renewed passion for helping girls thrive.

From C-Suite executives to community and civic groups, this first-of-its kind platform brought together the hearts and minds of everyone along the spectrum of ensuring girls succeed. With the goal of fostering connection and collaboration, more than 97% of attendees felt the Summit enabled them to enhance their work through broadening their own network. The 2017 All About Girls Summit is expected to bring in more than 1,000 leaders ready to join a national movement working to create a collective impact agenda for girls.
