Fordham Women's Summit: Philanthropy | Empowerment | Change

Fordham Women's Summit: Philanthropy | Empowerment | Change

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

Given the ongoing effects of COVID-19, we have decided to move this year’s Summit to an online format as your health and well-being are our top priorities. Though we are not gathering together in person, we are excited for the opportunity to broaden our reach in a virtual setting and engage hundreds of members of the Fordham community from all over the world.

In lieu of a registration fee, we hope you will consider joining one of our Women’s Giving Circles or making a one-time gift to any area of the University. Thank you for your support!
