Agnes Scott College’s second annual Women’s Global Leadership Conference, “Building A Better World: Women and Climate Justice” will take place September 23 – 25, 2021.

The conference will create the opportunity for internationally recognized scholars, community activists, political leaders, and private sector experts to engage in intentional conversations, form innovative partnerships for addressing climate injustice, and develop creative strategies for building more resilient communities.

The 2021 conference will feature a student showcase highlighting completed and in progress research by Georgia college students and Atlanta-area high school students (grades 9-12). The student showcase will be held on Agnes Scott College’s campus on Thursday, September 23, from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM and Friday, September 24, from 12:00 – 1:00 PM. 

They invite submissions for individual and group student poster sessions that relate to climate justice, climate change, sustainability, grassroots climate activism, health and the environment, and other related themes. Research from addressing women and other marginalized communities is strongly encouraged. The online application is available here.
