Women of Substance at 20
Kathleen Spehar, Director of the O'Shaughnessy, received a $15,000 grant from the St. Paul Foundation to re-launch a signature series in 2016, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, will culminate in the presentation of an anniversary festival as a primary celebratory event. This will also serve as the focal point from which to initiate action steps, re-define procedures and undertake practices identified from Phase I. They include creating a new business model that diversifies income and places mission at the center; developing relationships with campus stakeholders; cultivating champion supporters on campus and in the community; and growing engagement with audiences, including outreach to underserved youth, with an emphasis on girls and young women.
