AUDACIA Forum:Education for Every Girl Everywhere
AUDACIA, a two-day invitational forum, is a new model for ensuring every girl everywhere access to a quality education. AUDACIA is designed to be a highly interactive event offering attendees unique and valuable opportunities for dialog and meetings with potential collaborators.
Participants include educators and human development practitioners with proven or promising interventions that need help improving, sustaining or replicating their programs and philanthropists, foundation executives, and business persons who want to invest resources - money, technology, information, and volunteers - in programs that reflect best practices. The problems facing girls around the world are huge and effective solutions are urgently needed. The focus on best practices and the convening of people from the non-profit, for-profit, philanthropic, governmental and religious sectors is a brave, new strategy. Add it all up and it is audacious; give it a proper name, we call her… AUDACIA.
Showcase your programs to philanthropists and grant making institutions to which you might not normally have access.
Meet and collaborate with colleagues who have innovative approaches and with whom there are opportunities to partner and benefit from economies of scale.
AUDACIA Prize for Best Practice in Girls' Education will be awarded to a participating practitioner - includes cash prize.
