The We Are Girls Conference, produced by Girls Empowerment Network (GEN), are annually held in Austin, Houston and Dallas and are designed especially for 3rd – 8th grade girls and the adults who care about them.  With dynamic break-out sessions and featured speakers, girls get to be totally in charge of their day.  They walk away inspired by what’s possible and with a stronger belief in their personal power.
