As part of the Clinton Foundation’s “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project,” Hamptons visitor and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter Chelsea Clinton will host the first in a series of live and virtual dialogues designed to hear directly from girls about their lives, experiences and hopes for the future. “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation” begins at 3 p.m. today, April 17 and will be available to watch as it happens via Livestream.

“No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project” is an effort led by Hillary Clinton at the Clinton Foundation to bring together partner organizations to evaluate and share the progress women and girls have made in the 20 years since the UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. This effort is helping to chart the path ahead to accelerate full participation for women and girls in the new century. According to the Clinton Foundation, and the goals of this initiative, “The full participation of women and girls is critical to global progress, development, and security.”

Thursday’s dialogue, “with girls and about girls,” is a part of the No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project — the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation’s (clintonfoundation.org) efforts to help women and girls engage in “full participation” all over the world. Girls at schools and clubs across the country are encouraged to share their voice, ideas, and experience, in concert with others in the community.

Moderated by America Ferrera, this conversation will include questions and comments from an in-room audience in New York City, along with four schools based in different parts of the country via Skype, and thousands of others via Livestream and Twitter.
