The second annual Women and Philanthropy Symposium is set for Nov. 3 on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus. Members of OU Women’s Philanthopy Network are hosts. Their goal is to educate women about their roles in philanthropy and to encourage them in the area of charitable giving.
“Educating women to sustainably manage wealth is as important to empowering women of this generation as securing the right to vote was for our grandmothers,” said Cassie Gilman, executive director of OU’s Women’s Philanthropy Network. “Through the Women’s Philanthropy Network Symposium, we hope to educate and empower women to pursue their philanthropic purpose.”
Joi Gordon, Tulsa native and OU graduate, is the keynote speaker. She is CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. Her company assists low-income women with professional attire and resources needed to succeed in the workplace. Other speakers will talk on women’s philanthropy including Rep. Emily Virgin who will discuss women’s philanthropy in politics.
