Join us at the Girls on the Run NYC Sneaker Soirée to hear from leading women in sports, communications, and tech!
We’re thrilled to present some of our incredible panelists for the Girls on the Run NYC annual Sneaker Soirée on May 2, 2019. Each of our panelists will be speaking to our evening’s theme - critically addressing the gaps in the stories that our society tells about girls, and the stories that girls tell about themselves.
