2017 marked the year of the very first girl.talk@dgc summit, and proved to be overwhelmingly successful! girl.talk@dgc is a new initiative of our school, and exists as a yearly summit open to girls of the High School age bracket. 22 speakers addressed the girls over 3 days, and discussed specifically female-related issues with them in an open-forum type manner. The speakers consisted of popular and respected public figures, NGO founders and representatives, and female CEOs and professionals in careers that are typically male-dominated. Selected girls from 15 schools countrywide attended this conference and left feeling inspired and supported by their fellow women, ready to make a difference and to be brave, not perfect.
