Event description
Virtual GALS 2021 will include skill-building workshops, advocacy training, and guest speakers from traditionally male-dominated fields.

About this Event

Women’s Campaign International (WCI) has been spearheading leadership development programs for women since 1998. Our Girls Advocacy and Leadership Series (GALS) has—for ten years—sought to equip teenage girls in Philadelphia with the skills, confidence, and connections needed to take on leadership roles. Now, in the era of COVID-19, as the Philadelphia School District remains virtual and we are experiencing a lack of regular social connection, we believe that we need to move forward together, with a shared resilience and determination to persist in the face of adversity.

Building off of our eight-week virtual series this fall, WCI will continue virtual GALS programming in 2021. This series will create career connections with women changing the game in historically male-dominiated fields, in addition to covering how to create change through digital advocacy. All girl-identifying teenagers are invited to join from anywhere in the world to become part of our GALS community.

Beginning January 22, 2021, sessions will be hosted weekly on Friday evenings at 5pm EDT, GALS workshops will be a combination of advocacy-focused lessons and guest speaker sessions, featuring inspiring women leaders from a variety of professions. Additionally, GALS alumnae and participants are invited and encouraged to design and lead their own workshops for their peers, on any topic they are interested in.

If you are interested in attending all GALS sessions, please choose the ticket option, "GALS Participant - All Sessions."
