First Annual Community Summit

April 2, 2011 - 11:00am - 4:00pm
Keynote: Heather Arnet (Director, Women & Girls Foundation)

Campus Women's Organization

Campus Women’s Organization would like to invite you to participate in our first annual Community Summit! The goal is to bring together female students, staff, faculty and their allies to learn from each other and strengthen our women's community at Pitt.

The itinerary will feature:

  • A keynote address from Heather Arnet, Director of the Women and Girls Foundation
  • A “Telling Your Story” workshop, in which you’ll learn how to articulate your values and effectively share them with others.
  • Breakout group discussions about important issues on campus and anti-oppression work.
  • A networking reception with alumni, local businesswomen and other community members.

At the end of the day, we hope that our participants will have made personal and professional connections, strengthening students’ capabilities to host relevant programs, launch successful campaigns and support the work of all women on campus.

The culminating project of the Summit is to create a “Declaration of Sentiments” for women and allies on Pitt’s campus – communicating the values, goals and issues we will commit to in the next year.

The Summit will not be complete without the voices of faculty and staff. We hope that you will be able to attend all or part of the Summit, and in particular, the networking reception.

Thank you, and feel free to contact us with any questions! You can reach us either at or
