Youth Summit Examining Issues of Gender, Bias, and Equity
Through the National Youth Summit, the National Museum of American History offers classrooms the opportunity to wrestle with history and take on challenging conversations, setting the stage for ongoing discussions through the school. The summit brings middle school and high school students together with scholars, teachers, policy experts, and activists in a national conversation about important events in America’s past that have relevance to the nation’s present and future. The summit will examine issues of gender, bias, and equity. History will be the guide as students unpack the question, “What will gender equity look like?” and envision their own answers.
This year’s annual summit will take place live on September 21 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (ET) andon October 12 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Registration is required.
