The forum speakers were: Dr. Virginia Seitz, senior director of social and gender assessment at Millennium Corporate Challenge; Gina Reiss-Wilchins, director, Girl Up at United Nationsl Foundation; Alyse Nelson, president and CEP of Vital Voices Global Partnership and Karen Sherman, executive director of global programs for Women for Women International.

Reiss-Wilchins of Girl Up shared that the Girl Up Campaign, just launched in September 2010 to engage adolescent girls in the USA to help their peers in developing countries, is growing like wildfire.
