Girls Matter Conference
The original Girls Matter Conference, hosted at Oakland Community College, ran for five successful, consecutive years (2000 - 2004). Many thanks to the supporters, school districts, underwriters, presenters, and participants for helping us to produce
such an important program to the girls and parents in the community.
- The Original Conference for adolescent girls ages 11-14 and their parents
- Keynote presentation
- Separate workshops for girls and parents
- Topics include issues of importance to adolescent girls’ physical, emotional and mental health
The Conference was a collaboration of the OCC Womencenter, Farmington Public Schools, Birmingham Public Schools, Southfield Public Schools, West Bloomfield Community Education, Novi Community Schools, and the Waterford School District.
