Solidarity and Social Responsibility
2018 - 2019
After a breakout session where participants saw that etiquette is essential for solidarity and sociability on a daily level, speakers presented on solidarity and social responsibility on a larger scale. Maria Gomez, board member of two U.S.-based NGOs, presented on two projects personally important to her. She focused on efforts in the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as those in the Bronx, NY. Isabel Perez, world renowned concert pianist and UN-focal point, inspired the girls to get organized, make deadlines for themselves, see how they can join efforts or make use of existing resources, and change the world!
