About the Summit

The Boston College Women's 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 Carrie Rich, The Global Good Fund CEO and co-founder; Sophia Amoruso, CEO of Nasty Gal clothing and author of NYT-bestseller #GIRLBOSS; Riham Osman, Digital Media and Communications Strategist at the Muslim Public Affairs Council; and Ayanna Pressley, Massachusetts' first black congresswoman.
