Girls In Media
We are excited to announce our next Steps to Success: Girls In Media event at Olson on Saturday, April 22, 2017. There is no denying that the media has a significant influence on girls today. Girls consume media that often contain strong messages that ties a girl's worth to her appearance. Our Girls In Media provides an opportunity for girls to hear from a panel of extraordinary women in our community who work in all aspects of media. This new CGL event will empower girls to control the effect that the media can have in their lives by creating their own positive values-based messages of confidence and leadership. We hope you will join us at Girls In Media!
