2021 Girls Inc Annual



The Purpose

A celebration of the accomplishments of local girls and young women who are creating positive change and breaking the cycle of limitations for their families, communities, institutions, and all of us.  Over 100 influential executives, community and business leaders, local celebrities, and media will come together for a one hour breakfast event to learn about girls at-risk in Durham and how Girls Inc. is positioned to provide the opportunities, and experiences each girl needs to navigate the many gender, economic, and social barriers she faces, so she can grow up healthy, educated, and independent.

About the Spirit of Girls Breakfast
Thursday May 20, 2021
This will be a Virtual  Online Event

By Invitation Only

Breakfast/ coffee check in: 8:00 am

You have no doubt felt the impact of COVID-19 on businesses, events and charities across the country.

Girls Inc. of Durham have been monitoring the situation and with recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada, we have decided that the best thing to do for the health of attendees is to try and host a virtual “The Spirit of Girls Breakfast” Event.

 Many of you have expressed concerns over how COVID-19 will impact our event and your ability to attend/participate. Many of you may have a corporate ban on travel. Rather than putting you, the attendees, in the position of deciding whether or not to attend the event, we have made the decision to try hosting a virtual online event.

 While this decision does not come lightly, we believe strongly that this is the right thing to do.
