To promote the learning and leadership capacity of women and girls locally and globally.
Women’s Global Connection promotes the learning and leadership capacity of women and girls locally and globally. Middle school and high school girls from San Antonio have an opportunity to strengthen their ability to positively influence their communities and enhance their ability to serve as leaders by gaining a global perspective through Women’s Global Connection programs. The leadership and civic engagement training that participants receive through Girls Global Summit and Girls Leadership San Antonio helps participants engage with the concept that all individuals, regardless of culture, ethnicity, nationality, faith or spirituality, gender, sexuality, or class belong to a “common humanity.” Girls that apply and are accepted into the program work throughout each school year to design and lead the free, half-day Girls Global Summit – along the way learning not only about topics related to being a global citizen and gender empowerment, but also practicing the skills necessary to plan and execute a community event.
