Fordham Women's Summit: Philanthropy | Empowerment | Change

Wednesday, October 19, 2022

The Fordham Women’s Summit is a unique opportunity for Fordham alumnae, faculty, parents, and friends to discuss and celebrate their achievements as leaders, activists, and philanthropists, as well as attend professional and personal development sessions.

We are excited to announce that for the first time since 2019, we are hosting the Summit in person at Fordham University School of Law.

This year’s theme, Catalysts for Change: Women Innovators, centers around how Fordham women, across a variety of industries, are leveraging their unique brand of leadership to make a mark on and transform their fields for the betterment of their colleagues and the world around us. The Summit’s dynamic sessions will examine and discuss how women can pave their own path and learn important innovative skills they can put into practice in the places of work.
