2018 SESSION HIGHLIGHTS
Here are a few of the new sessions we’re especially excited for! Check out the grid below for a full schedule.
follow link Different is the New Normal
“Am I normal?” It’s a question we’re constantly all asking ourselves, but why? No one knows what “normal” even looks like, and what makes you different is most likely to be what makes you great! In this session, we’ll hear from a variety of self-proclaimed “weirdos” and talk about strategies for owning your uniqueness and celebrating it in others.
50% of girls feel paralyzed by the fear of failure during puberty. That means they’re opting out of key growth opportunities, like taking on challenges and trying new things. In this opening session, we’ll celebrate failure instead of fear it, with a “failure festival” that turns the F-word into a mark of leadership, innovation, and risk-taking in pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Get ready to celebrate failure!
