Inaugural Girl Fest Coming to AGS May 4

Inaugural Girl Fest Coming to AGS May 4

We’re pleased to announce our panelists for our inaugural Girl Fest event. Check out our webpage for bios on all the attendees.

Girl Fest is an afternoon of Girl Empowerment, scheduled for the afternoon of May 4, 2018. AGS will welcome professional women in the following fields for two 45-minute panels, so AGS students and alumnae can learn more about two different professions, network with women in these fields, and ask questions about how they got to where they are today. During Winterim 2018, students in Middle and Upper School brainstormed and planned this event for their community.

  • Women in Law
  • Women in Medicine
  • Women in STEM
  • Women in the Arts
  • Women in Business and Entrepreneurship
  • Women in Communications and Media
  • Women in Advocacy and Politics
  • Women in Nonprofits

At 3:00, the AGS community is invited to the back field and parking lot to enjoy a kickball game between AGS Alumnae and Faculty and Staff, as well as the Waffle House Food Truck. Students may bring $5 cash for a waffle bar or hash brown bar (with all the fixin’s available for each). 

Students have already had the opportunity to sign up for the two panels of their choice and will finish signing up this week.

Our panels are currently full, but if you know of someone who might be interested in participating in this type of event in the future, please email Katie Strangis in the Office of Communications.
