Experience a diverse panel of female role models sharing their stories of resilience, and how they overcame obstacles to achieve their goals. Girls grades 6-12 attend with a parent, teacher, or mentor.

Since 1997 more than 4,500 girls and women have attended this event. Participation in Voices has grown from 186 to almost 400 in four years and truly some of the most impressive Voices are the girls themselves shared in their evaluations.
