Otterbein University will be holding the second of three summits on March 3-4. The University of Findlay hosted the first summit on October 12, 2013. A date has yet to be determined for the third summit, which will be held at Bowling Green State University.
The partnership between the three universities aims to raise awareness of the important roles of women in philanthropy and to inspire women of all generations and ages serving in leadership.
Otterbein’s summit, conducted by President Kathy Krendl, will offer two keynote speakers, Dr. Musimbi Kanyoro, president and CEO of the Global Fund for Women, and Katie Koch, senior portfolio strategist and chief of staff for the Goldman Sachs Asset Management Office of the Chairman, United Kingdom. The summit will also include a variety of other opportunities, including panels, roundtables, a world café, and networking opportunities featuring local women leaders.
The Women in Philanthropy Summit is sponsored by The University of Findlay, Otterbein University, Bowling Green State University, The Benefactor Group, The Nord Family Foundation, Philanthropy Ohio, The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio, Cardinal Health, and The Columbus Foundation.
