Since 2011, The Center is the convener of The Women’s & Girls Collaborative of 32 women and girls serving organizations including Agnes Scott and Spelman Colleges representing more than 2500 women and girls.
We host four thematic programs a year– a month long recognition of Women’s Herstory Month in March, an all-day Girls Summit on the campus of Agnes Scott College, a daylong Celebration of the International Day of The Girl, and the Human Rights’ Mandate for Women on Human Rights Day, December 10th. In addition, we launched The International Human Rights Institute and the LGBT Institute providing research and action on two of the most pressing issues of marginalized women and girls of color.
We plan to host a minimum of four regional convenings based on the determined goals and objectives; and to make our facilities available to other institutions, including yours, associated with these efforts. In addition, we will focus the efforts of the Women’s and Girls Collaboration to align with the determined directions based on our convenings.
