Join us for the seventh annual Fordham Women’s Summit: Philanthropy | Empowerment | Change. This year’s theme, Beyond Green: Investing in a More Sustainable World is inspired in part by Fordham University’s Laudato Si’ Action Platform and will be focused on sustainability and how, beyond climate change, we can all take bold, visionary action in our own lives.

Fordham women are helping to lead this charge across many industries. Hear from our dynamic speakers about how they are innovating and changing our world for the better—now and for future generations.
