From Hope to Healing: The Girl Talk Encounter

Have you ever wondered if you’re the only person who doesn’t have life all figured out? Ever experienced a little hopelessness navigating the corporate ladder, the endless romantic chase, or those insecurities tucked deep into a dark corner?

Join us on February 7th as Julie Larkin, founder and director of Girl Talk, shares her story of women battling doubt after doubt through the college hallways, the need for hope in moments of despair, and the healing power of vulnerability. Both men and women are invited to join the conversation as we dive deeper into the Girl Talk encounter.

Reception to follow the event.

About the Speaker:

Julie Larkin is the founder and executive director of Girl Talk, a 501(c)3 non-profit seeking to create a sisterhood of self-worth. Through programs of personal storytelling, deeper conversation, and authentic friendship, Girl Talk inspires women in middle school, high school, college and beyond to recognize and radiate their true value.

Julie began Girl Talk in 2012 as a junior at The Catholic University of America, studying psychology. She went on to pursue her masters of science in business analysis from The Busch School of Business, and has spent several years working in higher-ed, non-profits, and startup organizations. She speaks to students, parents, and communities about self-worth, relationships, and entrepreneurship.

Experience a taste of the Girl Talk encounter through Julie’s EWTN News Nightly interview of Today’s Catholic Woman.
