The largest girl-led event for girls and young women in the world was an epic celebration of go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders!
Thousands of girls and those who support them came together from around the world in early October to attend G.I.R.L. 2017 in Columbus, Ohio.
Hosted by Girl Scouts of the USA, the mega event provided attendees with unforgettable experiences as they gained inspiration, tools to empower themselves, and the know-how to lead change in their communities, connecting with some of the most influential women in the world along the way.
Accomplished public figures Chelsea Clinton, Gabby Douglas, Barbara Pierce Bush, Mae Jemison, and others lead panels and breakout sessions on the pressing issues facing girls today. Many sessions featured female leaders from organizations and companies such as Facebook, Instagram, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, NASA, and AT&T.
