About BGS Summit

This year’s 2nd Annual Black Girl Soar Summit will acknowledge the brilliance and beauty of Black girls, while also advocating for their mental health created as a direct response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Black Girls SOAR Virtual Summit provides a “safe space” and digital convening of African-American girls, ages 11 – 22 years, to learn, reflect and empower themselves and others among a community of young Black Girls. Designed to provide important life-skills and tangible best practices in the areas of personal/social relationships, conflict resolution, academic, service/advocacy, healthy relationships, self-care, self-love, health, and wellness and more, the Summit will feature national, regional and local thought leaders/speakers across a variety of general sessions and specialized workshops. We appreciate our Visionaries that has been the groundbreaking Thought Leaders behind this community initiative. Eryn Hathaway Founder and Ceo, Eryn Pink, Ltd.
