The Every Girl Can Conference was an exclusive event organized by Mano Amiga and She Talks Asia, held in March of 2017. Attendees were treated to dynamic conversations both on and off stage, as well as tips on living the fullest life possible, and valuable networking opportunities. Individual speakers from the creative and corporate industries shared their wealth of experience in talks throughout the day, while seasoned media practitioners and activists weighed in on what it means to be a Modern Filipina. The question “Millennials: Empowered or Entitled” was tackled by our youth panel, and women from professions as varied as ‘climate scientist’ and ‘kid’s yoga teacher’ talked about New Frontiers for Women in a round table session over lunch.
The event was put together to raise gender equality awareness and encourage conversations about female empowerment. We also accepted pledges of volunteer hours for our Mano Amiga mentorship program for young girls.
