National Leadership Conference
Wow! What a week! Our Cleveland team had a productive conference learning, growing and collaborating with our GiGi’s network. We truly are #strongertogether!
“The GiGi’s Playhouse Leadership Conference was amazing! 5 days, 56 GiGi’s Playhouse locations, 300 leaders, 80 sessions, 40 speakers, 2 countries and one unstoppable voice for Down syndrome! The energy was through the roof! The growth we see at GiGi’s goes so far beyond the amount of Playhouses and families we serve but to the personal growth in each and every one of our leaders! From judges and CEOs, to mothers and doctors, and even a nun, the GiGi’s leaders are pushing themselves beyond what they ever thought possible and truly changing the way the world sees Down syndrome and sending a global message of acceptance for all! Look out world, were coming at ya!” – Nancy Gianni, Chief Belief Officer and GiGi’s mom
