The Women for OSU annual symposium is a unique opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about philanthropic decision making and leadership. Women for OSU celebrates members of the OSU family who display leadership in philanthropy by naming the Philanthropist of the Year and awarding scholarships to outstanding OSU students.
Planning for the 2022 Women for OSU Symposium is already underway, and details will be posted right here on this page as well as the OSU Foundation's social media channels. We are so eager to share what's to come! Stay tuned!
During the 2021 Symposium, Women for OSU announced it was donating $50,000 to the newly created Ann Hargis Pete's Pet Posse Endowed Fund. The fund will honor the First Cowgirl and provide support to the pet therapy program that she is so passionate about.
The 2021 Women for OSU Symposium celebrated the power and impact of philanthropy. We honored our Philanthropist of the Year, Cathey Humphreys; 13 outstanding student scholars; recognized the first group of Partnering to Impact grant recipients; and honored First Cowgirl Ann Hargis with a special tribute. If you missed this exciting event, you can watch a recap of the 2021 Symposium below. Due to contractual obligations, the recap does not include this year's keynote address.
