The primary goal of the GGA Summit is to empower girls and women to act globally. In honor of the Day of the Girl and in connection with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, each Summit focuses on an issue that affects girls and women around the world.

The theme for 2020 is “Elevating our Voices Toward Gender Equality.” To explore this theme, this event will feature a panel of volunteer women in Leadership roles who will discuss the challenges and opportunities they encountered throughout their educational and career paths. Additionally, the panel will discuss the service roles they have undertaken and how their work is connected to increasing girl’s access to education, work and representation in decision-making processes.

Following the panel, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more though interactive activities. This event will help USF undergraduate students earn the Global Citizen Award and local Girl Scouts earn the 2020 Global Action Award.

This event is made possible through partnerships with the USF Global Citizens ProjectUSF World, and Bank of America.
