Our GDST Talks series continues with two presentations taking place in December, and we would be delighted if you were able to join us.
Our second event, How to Raise Bold, Courageous and Resilient Women, will take place via Zoom on Wednesday 2 December at 7pm.
For this presentation, we welcome Dr Marisa Porges author of What Girls Need: How to Raise Bold, Courageous, and Resilient Women (Viking Press, 2020). Dr Porges is a leading voice on gender, education and leadership, thanks in part to her previous work as one of only a few women in the field of counterterrorism and national security. Previously a senior policy advisor in the Obama White House, she is currently Head of School at The Baldwin School, an all-girls school outside of Philadelphia, which shares the GDST’s ethos of personal excellence and preparing girls to be leaders and changemakers.
This event is suitable for parents with children in Years 3 to 13. If you would like to attend, please click here to book your tickets to the event.
Our third speaker is Destine Lord, an anti-racism consultant who will be presenting on How To Speak to Your Child about Racism. This will take place via zoom on Thursday 10 December at 6pm. Destine is currently working with GDST teachers and students and her talk ties in with GDST Undivided, our commitment to diversity, inclusion and real change. Based in Canada, Destine has worked for the last 10 years in both the private and public sectors, running workshops and training sessions to encourage innovative approaches to racial inclusion. As a Black Canadian woman, Destine can draw on her own experiences as a teaching tool for connecting with young women.
This event is suitable for parents with children in Years 7 to 13. If you would like to attend, please click here to book your tickets.
