Call for presenters for the 2022 Young Women’s Leadership Summit

BLOOMINGTON – The City of Bloomington Safe and Civil City Program (SCCP) and Young Women’s Leadership Summit (YWLS) committee invites proposals from prospective speakers for the Fourth Annual Young Women’s Leadership Summit. The dates of the summit are Thursday, November 3 at Bloomington North High School and Thursday, November 10 at Bloomington South High School.

Summit organizers seek to identify women of color to lead workshops for African American and Latina girls in middle and high school. Proposals of presentations that will serve to anchor each workshop must be submitted here by October 14.  Prospective presenters must be at least 18 years of age, identify as a female and a member of a racially minoritized group, and have educational, professional, or lived experience in the field in which they intend to lead a workshop.  The subject may not have been presented at last year’s summit

The Young Women’s Leadership Summit is dedicated to championing fairness and empowering, enhancing, and nurturing children and youth through community engagement.  More specifically, the summit’s goals are to provide space and opportunity for girls of color to express themselves, learn, and make memorable connections; and to highlight women of color in the community as role models.  The summit also seeks to support girls of color by coordinating and delivering resources and information specifically addressing the needs and concerns of this traditionally underrepresented group.  

Although focused on African American and Latina girls, the summit is open to female-identifying middle and high school-aged students of all races and backgrounds.
