Saturday, February 16th 2019
All Day


OWN IT Penn is a women’s empowerment, on-campus organization that aims to bridge the gap between female leaders and the young women who admire them, as well as to create awareness of the hurdles women still face in the workplace by hosting a diverse and accessible summit for college-aged students.

Neha Butala, our Social Impact Fellow working on The XX Factor, was invited to speak on a panel at the 2019 OWN IT Summit. Her panel, The Power of Speaking Up: Women in Activism, also included Katlyn Grasso (Founder of genHERation), Jeannine Lisitski (Executive Director and President of Women Against Abuse), Jennifer Morris (President of Conservation International), and Melissa Silverstein (Founder of Women and Hollywood).
