As we look forward to the next chapter of empowering women and girls, please join us for an evening of engaging programming and cocktails. Seyfarth Women's Network is pleased to partner with Girl Up, a United Nations organization, in presenting a screening of the acclaimed documentary film that started a movement: “Girl Rising.” Original partners in producing the film, Girl Up and Girl Rising are separate campaigns with parallel goals and experiences of the impact of empowering girls.  

Please join us at our new Willis Tower office space as we hear from leaders of both organizations. They will provide a framework for this significant global movement, and share powerful success stories achieved by their passionate adolescent girl advocates.



The innovative documentary at the heart of the campaign to change the way the world values girls.
