2018 Global Forum on Girls' Education® II - RED ALCED

If you have experience in the education and empowerment of girls and have an idea for an interactive and engaging session that highlights your work, we want to hear from you!

The men and women attending the Global Forum on Girls’ Education® II are educators, researchers, advocates, authors, practitioners, and related-industry leaders from across the globe dedicated to working with girls and young women. We anticipate attendance of over 1,000 delegates from more than 25 countries, including faculty and staff from PK-12 schools and universities as well as representatives from mission-aligned organizations from around the world.

Session Format
We encourage presentations not only about your institution’s or organization’s accomplishments, but also about unsuccessful initiatives that required iteration and include lessons learned.

Breakout Session: Traditional 50-minute session with up to four (4) total presenters per session (average audience size: 30-50 people).

Evaluation Criteria

  • Alignment with one or more of the six (6) universal themes:    

-       Leading Schools, Leading Girls: Preparing for the Future.

  • Special consideration will be given to proposals that:
    Include presenters from multiple schools/organizations in a panel discussion or other collaborative presentation format.

  • Red ALCED reserves the right to request modifications to a session proposal before final selections are made.
  • During the week of February 5, 2018, Red ALCED will email acceptance and declination decisions.

If a proposal is selected for inclusion in the Global Forum II program, Red ALCED and NCGS reserves the right to assign the date and time of the session or workshop at their sole discretion.
