About All Girls Matter Empowherment Expo

America’s Big Sisters Foundation seeks to
empower, encourage, and educate young
ladies in under served communities to
become positive, independent, goal-oriented and self-sufficient in society. We strive to ensure that every young lady is equipped with the knowledge to pursue a productive and fulfilling life, and to succeed in a diverse, evolving global society.

In 2017, America’s Big Sisters Foundation partnered with Robert Morris College to host its first America’s Big Sisters Empowerherment Summit in Chicago, IL. Since then this annual event continues to provide an opportunity for teenage girls to get together to network, share testimonies as well as be empowered by speakers with panel discussions and breakout sessions. The all-day event enables young ladies to develop their character, values, talents, and personal leadership in order to achieve their full potential in the future.

In 2020 the America’s Big Sisters Annual
Empowherment Summit will transition into
the ALL Girls Matter Empowherment EXPO. It
is open to girls ages 12-18 from ALL walks of
life. The goal is to shed light on the potential
outcomes of peer pressure and societal
influences as a teenage girl. It’s purpose is
to advocate for girls and prevent the growing epidemic of low self-esteem, cutting, bullying, eating disorders, sex trafficking, domestic abuse, and suicide, just to name a few. It creates

an avenue for ALL girls to unite-despite their
environmental, personal, and socioeconomic
differences-to share experiences and
obtain strategies to overcome the world’s
stereotypes and negative influences. The ALL
Girls Matter Empowherment EXPO will enable
young ladies to develop their character,
values, talents, and personal leadership in
order to achieve their full potential now and
in the future.
