Where: East Mecklenburg High School - 6800 Monroe Rd, Charlotte, NC 28212

Details: 300 girls in grades 6-12 will be connected with, and inspired by dynamic women leaders in our community. Girls will participate in panel discussions, team building activities and career exploration. They will also have afternoon breakout sessions on civic engagement, philanthropy, personal branding and social media.


Frequently Asked Summit Questions:

How are the girls selected?

Summit registration opens annually during the summer. Registration is open on a first come, first serve basis until we reach our capacity of 300 girls. Girls in grades 6-12 in Charlotte and the surrounding area with a commitment to strenghtening their leadership and advocacy skills can register to attend. Some girls are identified through principal, teacher, youth group and community recommendations, while others self-select through an interest in the program or parent recommendation. EmpowHERment aims to connect girls and women from a diversity of cultural, racial and socio-economic backgrounds in our city, as we believe this will strengthen our collective voice and network as leaders.

What does the registration fee include?

The $10 registration fee covers the cost of lunch, t-shirt and summit materials for each participant. Other items and supplies are made possible with the support of our community partners and sponsors.

What is the attire?

Every girl and volunteer will receive an EmpowHERment Summit T-Shirt upon check-in the day of the summit. Casual, comfortable attire is recommended because we have a high energy cardio workout session after lunch!
