Hosted by the John Glenn College of Public Affairs and the women of the Ohio Legislature to recognize the future of women's leadership in Ohio.

Women of POWER brings together the next generation of women in elected office with women currently elected in the Ohio Legislature and throughout Ohio. The Women of POWER networking reception benefits the Glenn College nonpartisan leadership programs that educate and empower Ohio women ready to run for political office and be leaders in their communities.

Act now and support the rising leaders of POWER by being a sponsor to the Women of Power 2020 fundraising reception.

More than 250 women and men attended and shared in a fundraising effort that surpassed goals and delivered more than $36,000 to the POWER programs.

For questions on sponsorships, please contact Shadia Jallaq at or 614.247.8181.
