Beyond Giftedness Conference XXVI
The 26th annual Beyond Giftedness Conference provides a forum for teachers, counselors, parents, administrators, policymakers, and other professionals to share and learn about a multitude of topics (academic, social/emotional, educational policy) relating to gifted children — how to meet their unique needs, and unlock their unique potentialities. Noted local and national speakers will deliver keynotes, lead breakout sessions, and engage in networking. General conference participants are eligible for 7.5 hours of professional development certification, and can earn up to 0.5 hours of graduate credit.

Girls Inc. of Memphis Hosts #GirlsToo Teen Talk Conference on Healthy Relationships
Girls Inc. of Memphis will host a #GirlsToo Teen Talk featuring youth leaders from the Memphis community discussing important issues related to healthy relationships, including sexual harassment, teen dating violence, consent conversations and more. Teen Talks are a series of events organized by the national nonprofit ​Girls Inc.​, which provides programming for girls ages 6 to 18 through a network of 81 affiliates, including Girls Inc. of Mem​phis. The event will focus on healthy relationships and ​feat​ure facilitators from local organizations including ​Hope House​, the ​Shelby County Crime Victims & Rape Crisis Center, the ​University of Memphis Sexual Assault Prevention & Awareness Coalition​ and others who will discuss issues related to sexual harassment and violence in the lives of young​ people. There will also be a spoken word performance and a closing panel discussion. ​Local artist Marco Pavé will also lead a session on the impact of hip-hop music. Alarmingly, ​about 7 in 10 girls have been sexually harassed​ by the time they leave high school. A ​survey​ of young girls between the ages of 14 and 19 released last year found that 3 out of 4 girls feel unsafe at least once in a while. The majority also said they hear boys making sexual comments at least several times a week. Teen Talks are part of the new Girls Inc. campaign called ​#GirlsToo​, which launched in October 2018 and focuses​ on prevention of sexual harassment and violence among youth. The campaign also hopes to inspire ​actions aimed at addressing the n​ orms and stereotypes that fuel these behaviors and encourages everyone to sign ​the #GirlsToo pledge.
