iGEM is hosting a day of leadership development for girls in grades 5 - 8 on the Northwestern Evanston campus. Our aim is to help girls develop the skills and confidence to tackle the many challenges leadership entails and to make a difference in their communities and in the world. The morning portion of the summit will include a speaker, leadership building activities, and open dialogue centered on developing skills and values. After lunch, we will reconvene for a presentation and various interactive activities focused on the following issues affecting girls around the world: access to education, healthcare, safety, and leadership opportunities.
International Gender Equality Movement (iGEM) is a Northwestern University campus chapter of the United Nations Foundation campaign Girl Up. Girl Up aims to ensure that all girls are educated, healthy, safe, counted, and positioned to be the next generation of world leaders.
