Women of Ohio Wesleyan Returns, Event Scheduled for October

The second Women of Ohio Wesleyan event, which promotes networking, mentoring, and giving, has been announced for Oct. 19-20. The inaugural two-day event in September 2016 drew more than 100 alumnae, students, and faculty to Merrick Hall for panel discussions on philanthropy, entrepreneurship, and achievement in wide-ranging conversations and informal networking gatherings.

Kara Trott ’83, the founder and CEO of Quantum Health and a member of OWU’s Board of Trustees, and Samantha W. Sharpe ’09, clinical research program manager at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, have signed on to serve as co-chairs for the 2018 event. Planning for the event is ongoing.
