BOLD Gatherings

Leadership Summit

A biannual leadership summit will be held in New York City at the Hearst Corporation (the parent company of the Pussycat Foundation). The summit will include BOLD Scholars, national program staff, and faculty mentors, as well as women leaders in the BOLD network across sectors. Themes and issues related to women’s leadership in the workforce, being a change agent, and social inequity on a national and global scale will be explored by women across multiple fields, sectors, and generations. Themes related to inclusion and equity on BOLD college/university campuses will be discussed and each of the campus transformation projects will be detailed in presentations by each of the four cohorts of BOLD Scholars.

Community Retreat

A community-building retreat for the new cohorts will take place each year at a convenient location. The purpose of this retreat is to strengthen community across different BOLD cohorts and deepen a collective understanding of the BOLD mission and program on campus. The first retreat will take place in January 2017 with the inaugural cohort of 40 BOLD Scholars.
