We Are Girls Conference Austin!

What is We Are Girls?
The We Are Girls Conferences, produced by Girls Empowerment Network (GIRLS) are held in Austin, Houston, and Dallas, Texas annually and are designed especially for thousands of 3rd – 8th grade girls and the adults who care about them. With dynamic break-out sessions and an empowering dance party, girls get to be totally in charge of their day. They walk away inspired by what’s possible and with a new belief in their personal power. The 2019-2020 theme is:
“Believe It and Become It.”
“We Are Girls is an incredible day of education and self-discovery for girls,” says Julia Cuba Lewis, MSW, executive director, Girls Empowerment Network. “Girls walk through the doors and they learn that they are in charge of their day, choosing sessions where they can learn how to believe in their ability to succeed. We see many girls who open up their hearts to their moms who attended with them, transforming themselves and expanding their own views of what they believe is possible for themselves and for their relationships.”
Aisha Thomas – Confidence Creator and Mental Health Advocate With an unstoppable mindset, Aisha aims to embed inclusion, self-love and motivation into the culture of each young person she encounters, resulting in healthier homes, schools and community climates.

In addition to its featured speakers, We Are Girls Austin offers girls and adults a wide range of presentations, workshops and hands-on activities designed to promote well-being, creativity, goal-setting and more. Conference organizers recruit experts from areas including arts, education, social/emotional learning, health and wellness, dance, parenting, counseling, technology and entrepreneurship.
We Are Girls is designed especially for girls in grades 3-8, and the adults that care about them, including but not limited to: parents, educators, and mentors.
Girls Empowerment Network knows girls are powerful, and it’s their mission to help girls know it too. Through schools, camps and conferences, girls experience a self-efficacy curriculum that teaches them how to believe in their ability to succeed. WE ARE GIRLS was created in 2008 as a one-day event for girls to expand their view of what’s possible alongside experts and the people who care about them.
