OWN IT Penn
OWN IT started to address the gender leadership gap. Women have filled the education gap. In fact, they are graduating college at higher rates than men. However, there is still a dearth of women sitting on corporate boards, in science and technology, in C-level positions, representing us in government, and in general leadership roles. We all know you cannot be what you cannot see.
OWN IT seeks to provide young women with an opportunity to not just see, but learn from and connect with women who are living out leadership in a variety of fields and positions. Similarly, OWN IT seeks to provide well-established women with an outlet to give back and share what they have learned with future leaders.
