G Day is a one-day event designed to celebrate and empower girls* age 10 to 12 as they take their first steps on the journey toward adulthood. G Day supports the development of positive self-esteem and healthy peer and family relationships in a community context and includes parents and other supportive adults in girls’ lives.

To get to have a ritual that says: Welcome! You're special. You're wanted. You're part of this community...that changes everything!

More than 300 girls and adults participate in a multitude of diverse, fun, creative activities that encourage connection, compassion and confidence. In the morning we hear the ‘real’ stories behind public leaders: the challenges that they faced as girls themselves, and how they overcame them to be who they are today. In the afternoon, the girls and adults separate to experience their own programming.
