Barriers to Girls Success

Join Chess Girls DC and several key girl-serving organizations as we discuss barriers to the success of girls in Washington, DC despite the education system and services that are offered?  The panel discussion seeks:

  • To identify and develop an agenda for the top 1 or 2 pressing issues affecting DC girls. 
  • To determine what are the top 1 or 2 gaps in services or opportunities for DC’s most underserved girls. 
  • To identify what services or opportunities would you offer if you had the ability to offer anything?
  • To develop, then propose a “DC Girls’ Agenda”

The goal of gathering this information will be to form an action committee to collaborate with key agencies and organizations, engage lawmakers, the Mayor and the media in prioritizing and addressing the top issues.

If successful, The day of the Girl will be a day to awaken the enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives in the Washington, DC. These goals would provide an opportunity for girls to learn about leadership and become aware of resources to help them reach their full potential
