The Boston College Summit
The Boston College Summit is designed to empower all attendees by connecting them with a community of fellow classmates, speakers, and guests, and creating a space in which to have meaningful conversations and share game-changing ideas.
Over the course of the day, speakers share thoughtful wisdom from a wide array of fields, including media, politics, business, and STEM. Highlights from past summits include: Patrisse Cullors, activist and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement; Chanel Miller, writer, activist and survivor; Brittany Packnett Cunningham, co-founder of Campaign Zero; Ayanna Pressley, Massachusetts' first black congresswoman; Sarah Kay, spoken word poet; Carrie Rich, founder of the Global Good Fund; and Riham Osman, Digital Media and Communications Strategist at the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
As a result of attending the Boston College Women's Summit, participants will:
- Report feeling that different aspects of their identities/interests were represented in the event.
- Increase feelings of agency and power
- Develop a motivation to explore new and challenging perspectives either through course enrollment, extracurricular involvements, or leadership opportunities.
- Broaden their network of mentors/conversation partners.
