Registration Open for Global Forum on Girls' Education® II

Global Forum on Girls' Education® II
June 18-20, 2018
Marriott Washington Wardman Park
Washington, DC

Nearly 1,000 educators, researchers, and authors from 23 countries came together in 2016 for the first-ever Global Forum on Girls' Education®. What began as an exchange of best practices for teaching girls became much more significant. It signaled the start of a movement -- a call to action to awaken the world to the importance of empowering girls through a single, inalienable right: access to a quality education.

NCGS and its 15 strategic partners from around the globe are eager to take the next step in making our voices heard and for educators at girls' schools to lead this conversation. Join as we stand up -- and speak up -- for girls everywhere!

The Global Forum II will bring together girls' education advocates to exchange best practices and innovative approaches for academic excellence and the healthy development of girls.
