Inspired by the annual multi-disciplinary IdeaFestival held each fall in Louisville to foster creativity, innovation and transformative learning, Louisville Girls Leadership (LGL) will present the inaugural Girl IdeaFestival targeting specifically high school girls, the adults in the lives and male allies.

The goal of the Girls IdeaFestival is to develop creative and innovative solutions to challenges girls face today. The event will focus particularly on creating ideas to counter longstanding issues; for changing the way girls are portrayed by the media, developing healthy relationships, encouraging girls to become more civically engaged, expanding girls’ economic opportunities, and eliminating human trafficking.   This one-day event will further support LGL’s mission of empowering girls community-wide.

According to Nicole Nemec, high school senior at Kentucky Country Day and Chair of Louisville Girls Leadership, This event was created for girls by girls, which gives it the unique quality of being fun and educational. It is going to be the type of experience that leaves girls feeling educated and excited about the future.”
