Louisville Girls Leadership will present its sixth Girls IdeaFestival® on April 29, 2018.  This annual event continuously galvanizes members of the community to become involved, passionate, and engaged in the civic arena. Inspired by the annual multi-disciplinary IdeaFestival®, Louisville Girls Leadership adds an additional component to the main goal of foster creativity, innovation and transformative learning targeting specifically high school girls, the adults in their lives and male allies in the community of civically engaged women.

The goal of the Girls IdeaFestival® is to develop creative solutions to challenges girls face today. The event will focus particularly on creating ideas to counter longstanding issues; for changing the way girls are portrayed by the media, developing healthy relationships, encouraging girls to become more civically engaged, expanding girls’ economic opportunities, and eliminating human trafficking. This one-day event will further support LGL’s mission of empowering girls community-wide.

We'll have light snacks available throughout the day. There is no dress code, we welcome you to come as you are!  To reach out about volunteering at Girls IdeaFestival click here.
