We are proud to announce our keynote speaker for 2016…
I’m 24 years old and I have a passion for empowering young women. Why? Because every young woman deserves to have confidence in her abilities. If I had it my way, every girl would grow up loving her body and believing in herself.
I’ve spent the last 12 years pursuing this dream of mine, traveling all over the country. I’ve been in front of audiences of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. From an elementary assembly, to a room filled with moms and dads, I’ve had the chance to speak to every type of person, with one goal in mind: to instill confidence in the heart of a young woman.
That’s why I do what I do. We all want to help, and I know how.
I believe real, bold confidence comes from simple acts of everyday bravery. It’s about taking one step at a time.

The Mission of the Conference is to create a safe forum for Marin’s teenage girls to explore their place in the world, gain skills to create positive relationships, learn confidence to make good choices and to experience local community support that would help them achieve their goals.
Create a safe, fun informative event for teen girls to learn, share and grow; to provide effective tools to help them be successful as they navigate the teen years; to meet MWC mission/objective as to providing leadership to teen girls.
After conducting research and focus groups, the Marin Women’s Commission created the first Marin Teen Girl Conference in 2011 to address the unmet needs of teen girls in the County. Through the Marin Teen Girl Conference, the MWC provides tools, resources, ideas and support to empower the young women of Marin County. The girls, who range in age from 13 to 18 years, reported that they enjoyed having a safe, collaborative and fun place to explore topics that were important to them. The Conference connects the girls to resources, offers leadership training, and introduces them to thoughts beyond their world.
