About Provo Girls Summit
We held our first ever Provo Girls Summit in March 2017. It was a huge success, with 400 girls and their caregivers in attendance, and over 20 professional women with interactive displays and presentations. Our attendees met professionals, asked questions, and had a great time!
“There wasn’t one particular profession that was my favorite. I mostly liked that now I know that there are so many options out there for me.” – Girls Summit 2017 Attendee
Why Provo Girls Summit?
When it comes to discovering interests, following passions, and choosing a career, we believe it’s best to show girls a variety of options. Whether they pursue math, science, business, creative work or other fields, it matters when girls are able to see professionals who look like them. Provo Girls Summit exists to show girls that women work in every field, even though they might not be easily visible. We connect with these women and invite them to talk about their professions with young girls whose minds are still filled with possibility.
How it works
We quickly hatched the idea for Provo Girls Summit, an event where girls could meet women from a variety of professions, where they could ask questions, make connections, and see successful models of women in many different lines of work.
When we reached out to the many professional women in our networks and pitched them our idea, each of them was thrilled at the prospect of helping girls achieve their professional goals and dreams. With all the excitement of the women involved, we knew we’d stumbled on something special. We hope to see the event grow and expand in the years to come, so that girls across the state will have the tools they need to be just what
