Happy Spring From Girls in the Lead

The last few months have been great ones here at Girls in the Lead. After the amazing response we got from our November webinar on Sexual Health Education and Sports for Development, we decided to host another event covering the same topic. Our attendees felt that the topic was a very important one, and, based on the feedback we got, we felt it was imperative to host another. We welcomed back Jane Wallis from The Grassroot Project to speak again, along with Brennan Keiser from the Minga Foundation. The two speakers shared fantastic presentations on the programming their organizations have done to use sports to teach sexual health topics. They detailed what the programs were and what the impact they had was. Both of the speaker presentations can be found on our website.


In addition, we invited participants into breakout rooms where they had an opportunity to ask the speakers questions in a more intimate setting. The discussion this sparked was amazing, with participants sharing some of their work and asking how they can incorporate similar programming. Some feedback we got from attendees was that the event was “a dream come true,” with many learning how sports can be used as a tool to address serious topics that may be uncomfortable to talk about, and what techniques should be used to do so.


These types of connections fostered by Girls in the Lead’s events are so valuable, and we are looking to create a platform so these relationships can develop outside of our webinars. Girls in the Lead is creating a community page where people can connect with others doing work in this space, share ideas, and develop valuable programming to support girls’ confidence and self-esteem. We will post questions, polls, and current events to spark discussion, and share resources to promote programming. We will also encourage members to post their own questions, seek feedback on their programs, and start discussions about what is important in their organizations. This new initiative, in addition to our webinars, will ensure that Girls In The Lead continues to promote connections and bolster programming in the sports for development space.


With sporty warm wishes,

Girls in the Lead
