Atlanta GLOW Young Women's Leadership Conference

Atlanta GLOW's third annual summer leadership program will be our biggest one yet! Atlanta GLOW will bring together leading professionals from all over Atlanta including entrepreneurs, educators, trailblazers in the corporate and philanthropic sectors, and government and civic leaders with the ultimate goal of encouraging, educating, and equipping young, low-income women to be thriving, self-sustaining leaders and effective agents of economic growth in their communities. Each year, our Leadership Incubator Program (LIP) provides the opportunity for highly motivated young women (ages 16-25) to: develop leadership and soft skills; increase self-confidence and support networks; explore career interests; beef up their resumes; learn how to impact their communities; and improve their odds for college and career success. Occurring Saturday, July 8, 2017, conference attendees will have the opportunity to participate in developmental workshops that build upon their enthusiasm for community change by equip them with the skills needed to gain sustainability through post-secondary education and career advancement, build influence and local capacity, and work with government to bring about valuable changes to their community. Young ladies must be ages 16-25 to participate, and highly motivated to learn new leadership and professional skills.
