YWCA Chicago & ACFE Group announce the 1st Annual Girls Education Conference in Chicago

Chicago, April 16, 2019. The YWCA Metropolitan Chicago in partnership with the African Community Fund for Education Group will be launching the 1st Annual Girls Education Conference in Chicago on May 17, 2017. This conference will bring together leaders from across the US, and the world, to raise awareness and engage in dialogue around the importance of investing in girls’ education, and to raise funds to support various girls’ education initiatives. The theme for the event is FEARLESS GIRLS: HOW INVESTING IN GIRLS’ EDUCATION YIELDS GLOBAL ECONOMIC GROWTH.

For 140 years, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago has worked to empower women and girls and create racial equity through direct services and public policy advocacy. Over the past three years, the YWCA has focused on a business model that allows for greater investment in women and girls through initiatives such as the Women’s Health Exchange, workforce development, comprehensive Sexual Violence Support Services, and TechGYRLS youth STEM program.

Through the Educate the Girl Child Campaign the ACFE is focusing on international partnerships to create more opportunities for access to education for girls.
