You are invited to attend Women in Philanthropy’s Civic Engagement Summit—a half-day event on Friday, September 16, 2022—to explore the topic of Civic Engagement & Advocacy, a focus area identified by Women in Philanthropy supporters as a priority in its mission to change the lives of women, girls, and their families in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
After much research and many organized panel discussions over the past two years, Women in Philanthropy learned that the COVID-19 pandemic brought many challenges causing people to feel disengaged from civic life and from advocating for important causes. Women in Philanthropy also learned that there are a variety of ways to make a difference in the area of Civic Engagement and Advocacy that focus on breaking many of the barriers women, girls, and their families face that are preventing their engagement in civic life.
At the Civic Engagement Summit, together with experts in the field, we will engage in valuable discussion and explore topics including voter engagement, leadership development, and youth civic education, to learn how Women in Philanthropy can take action, break barriers, and make a greater impact in civic engagement in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Please join us at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center in Scranton on Friday, September 16, 2022, from 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM to be part of the Civic Engagement Summit. Lunch, refreshments, and an evening networking reception from 5 to 6 PM are included. Registration is complimentary for Women in Philanthropy supporters and $30 for the general public.
More information, including an agenda and speakers, will be announced in the coming weeks.
