About The Council & L4C

About the Council and CAG
The Council for the Advancement of Girls is a student-run and student-created organization at The Agnes Irwin School in Rosemont, PA. The Council is a program of The Center for the Advancement of Girls (CAG), which spearheads educational projects to further leadership, wellness, global awareness and teaching and learning in the 21st century at AIS and beyond. CAG focuses on those four pillars of study through research, partnerships, programs and community outreach.
About L4C
The first Leading for Change Conference was in 2013, making this our fifth annual event. The goal of the Conference at its very core is to promote changes in women’s leadership through a day of conversation, inspiration, and innovative ideas. While Leading for Change has always been a one of a kind event because it’s by girls, for girls, this year, we are reimagining the day as a way to give back to women’s organizations in our area through drives and service leadership.
