Call for Workshop Proposals

The Women & Girls 2010 Thriving in the New Economy Summit is calling for workshop proposals.

The Office of Women’s Policy, in partnership with the City of San Jose and community organizations throughout Santa Clara County will be hosting a summit titled “Women and Girls 2010: Thriving in the New Economy” on Dec. 2-4, 2010. Three hundred decision-makers and youth and adult advocates will be convened for high-energy dialogue and action planning to improve the economic status of women and girls in Silicon Valley.

Our vision for Silicon Valley is a community environment where women and girls are valued, safe and have opportunities to thrive. The goal of the summit is to create a common agenda for action, focused on 4 key areas that affect the economic security of women (education, economics, health and violence against women) and follow-up to track our efforts and achievements to ensure women and girls in our community have true equity and access to opportunity and advancement in the new economy.

We are reaching out to local organizers and artists who believe the arts are power, voice and advocacy. As we launch efforts that will advance women and girls for generations to come, we need artists who want to partner with us and who believe that the arts are not only contribute to the aesthetic and cultural quality of life in Silicon Valley, they are fundamental to creating a diverse, sustainable, desirable community environment.

We invite proposals for experiential and/or performance-based workshops that focus on writing, storytelling, drama, songwriting, drumming, digital design, and other forms of art expression. We support proposals that focus on social change. Because we strongly committed to including individuals from diverse backgrounds, we encourage proposals from people of color and from presenters of many ages.
