USC OWN IT Leadership Summit 2022

Donation protected
USC OWN IT is a student-run, non-profit organization that aims to connect the undergraduate students of the University of Southern California to the women leaders that inspire them. Our mission is to bridge the gap between women leaders of the 21st century and students who admire them by shaking up the women's leadership arena and producing game-changing opportunities for college-age women. Each year, we host a summit with the goal of empowering students through keynote speakers, mainstage panels, breakout sessions, workshops, and networking/recruiting opportunities.

We will be holding our annual OWN IT Women’s Leadership Summit in-person on February 20, 2022. Because of the pandemic, our team hasn’t been able to secure as many corporate sponsorships as past summits, which means we need your help to inspire the next generation of leaders in an unprecedented year. While we will charge a ticket fee for attendees, this amount won’t be enough to cover expenses like our venue, food catering, and decorations. All contributions will directly fund our 2022 event. Your help and support will allow us to invite a wide range of speakers and foster empowering professional connections through our summit. Please consider supporting our event which will create conversation among the next generation of student leaders and equip our attendees with the tools to inspire women’s empowerment during these unprecedented and constantly changing times.

Thanks so much for your help and support, and we look forward to OWN IT 2022!
