Young Women’s Leadership Summit

The application for the 2021 Young Women’s Leadership Summit will open in March!

The Foster School of Business’ Young Women’s Leadership Summit is targeted at rising high school seniors who identify as female. Students in this program will explore the world of business through workshops and discussions with faculty, alumni, current students, and professionals. The focus of the Summit is to introduce students to the areas of Finance, Operations and Supply Chain Management, and Information Systems. While these areas are the main focus of the Summit, students will also learn about professionalism, leadership, and what to expect in a college business setting as they prepare to pursue an undergraduate education.
