Introducing Girl Talk, Ellis’ New Virtual Parenting Series

Girl Talk is moving from the written word on our blog to the spoken word with our new, free webinar series, Girl Talk: Conversations for Parents. A parent's guide to raising girls who become bold, vibrant changemakers, Girl Talk brings families, educators, and experts to explore issues and ideas related to raising school-aged daughters.
Every third Thursday of the month, this online meeting space will provide parents with an avenue to hear from a panel of voices who are versed in supporting girls to become bold, authentic, and intellectually vibrant changemakers. From responsible social media use to community engagement, no topic is too big or small. These easy-to-access discussions will provide helpful resources and applicable strategies on how parents can raise girls who work collaboratively, ask questions, and pursue their dreams.

All Girl Talk webinars are free and open to the public and will be recorded so parents can easily access them either live or on-demand. The monthly lineup through August is open for registration, take a look at our sessions and reserve your spot today!
