The 2018 Summit, which was internally focused, took place in an environment where inspiration and education go hand-in-hand. Open to PACE staff, board members, sponsors and funders, this year's event included strategic work groups to deepen the level of conversation and action. 


pace center for girls

PACE Center for Girls began in 1985 with a mission of providing girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy. Since inception PACE has served more than 40,000 girls, believing each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice, achieve her potential and celebrate a life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity and grace.

The All About Girls Summit provided for a great opportunity to meet change-makers and thought leaders who are pushing for gender equity in their communities and on a national scale. The speakers were incredible: from Jennifer Buffet to Gabrielle Union!
