OWN IT was started in 2013 by two Georgetown undergrads with a very specific purpose- to bridge the gap between female leaders and the millennials who look up to them. Last spring, Penn hosted its first OWN IT UPenn Summit, boasting over 50 speakers from a variety of fields and over 200 attendees. While our campus is filled with bright, talented, successful young women, there is little discussion of how to be a leader as a woman. OWN IT allows college students to hear from and have face time with women of all ages who have already made great accomplishments in their fields.
The OWN IT Summit is a one-day conference to be held at the University of Pennsylvania on March 24, 2018. The day will consist of both main-stage speakers and breakout sessions. Topics will range from broad issues, such as "Being the Boss," to industry-specific, for example, "Women in Media." We already have some amazing women slotted to speak, including One Love Foundation CEO and Founder Katie Hood.
