Student Summit: Building Healthy Relationships: Guts, Courage and Emotional Strength

This conference for emerging high school leaders will feature Jackson Katz, an internationally renowned expert on gender, race and violence. He will inspire youth with his passionate commitment to gender equality by challenging the norms that foster abusive behavior.  Through engaging breakout sessions led by peers, this conference will focus on building leadership, empower students to be upstanders, and confront gender stereotypes while teaching students ways to change their school culture. Thank you to Proskauer Rose LLP for the generous contribution to support this event.
