‘International Day of the Girl’ to be celebrated with Oct. 13 leadership conference

Hosted by One Village Alliance, the “Girls Can Do Anything!” Leadership Conference looks to inspire Delaware’s future leaders.

Thursday, October 11 is International Day of the Girl, officially declared by the United Nations in 2011. The celebration of girlhood won’t end there in Wilmington, though, with a full-day girls’ conference on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m at Grace United Methodist Church in Wilmington.


Hosted by One Village Alliance, the “Girls Can Do Anything!” Leadership Conference is all about inspiring girls aged 9 to 17 to reach their full potential, including breakout sessions throughout the day, called “Sessions in Socks,” where girls are encouraged to wear colorful socks while they discuss various topics, including:

  • Girl Fight for Good! Advocacy, Activism & Social Justice
  • Reimagining Beautiful: Self Love, Sisterhood & Social Media
  • S.T.E.A.M College & Career Pathing
  • Celebrity in ME! Confidence, Purpose & Poise
  • Girl Powered Business: Social Entrepreneurship

Registration is now open for $10. The event features vendors and exhibitors, and volunteers to be mentors and role models.
