The Los Angeles County Department of Parks & Recreation on Saturday, Oct. 9, will host the 7th annual “I Matter: Girls Empowerment Conference” at three area sites — Loma Alta Park in Altadena, Hacienda Heights Community Park in Hacienda Heights and Earvin Magic Johnson Park in Los Angeles.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is free, but registration is required.
With the theme, “Girls with Dreams Become Women with Vision,” this year’s conference is designed to motivate girls to go after their dreams and educate them on becoming successful and powerful women.
The annual conference is supported by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors. Workshops will include women in tech, step into your power, girls and women with vision, pathways to college, delete the divide and sports and dance workshops.
Teen entrepreneur Mikaila Ulmer, founder and CEO of Me & the Bees Lemonade, will be the keynote speaker.
There will be SWAG and girl power lunch party complete with a DJ.
To register, and for more information — including shuttle service to the three sites — go to https://parks.lacounty.gov/gec2021/.
