Event description
Symposium headlined by Elena Delle Donne, focused on analyzing the challenges & opportunities for girls in sports, especially basketball.

About this Event

Philadelphia Youth Basketball (PYB) has a unique opportunity to impact the lives of females through HoopHers, an inclusive, female-based initiative with the goal to empower girls and address their unique challenges. Though HoopHers is only in its third year of program development, we have received positive feedback from many girls across this city and region who have engaged in this high-potential program. We are continuing to mobilize a powerful constituency of women and male allies who are eager to support the agenda of girls’ and women’s empowerment through sports and leadership development. Motivated by our programmatic success to date, PYB is hosting a HoopHers gathering aimed at unpacking the unique opportunities & challenges encountered by adolescent girls and how basketball – and sport in general - can be delivered to help these young women become their very best as students, athletes, and positive leaders. Our goal with this event is to provide a forum for thoughtful discussion around these issues with an eye towards affecting change.
