Time: 8:30am to 4:30pm
Location: OSU - Fawcett Event Center

The WSBA is proud to be a sponsor for this event. Our co-founder and executive director, Mary McCarthy will be on one of the panels. We hope to see you there!

For the first time in Columbus history, leading organizations, addressing the professional and personal needs of women in Central Ohio, are uniting, under one roof, in an effort to get more women, like you, informed, inspired and engaged in the community. 

 Thrive Columbus is a full day summit that will support women in accomplishing their goals by making sure they are aware of the resources available to them, give them direction on where and how they can take action on the issues impacting our community, and will offer an avenue for women to lend their voices toward collaborative change. 

Whether you are interested in starting a business, joining a commerce, running for office, volunteering on a board, participating in civic activities, growing a hobby post retirement, networking, finding the right healthcare services, or learning more about legislation and policy, Thrive Columbus is creating a landscape to make it easier for women, like you, to navigate the resources you need, when you seek them.

Come join Columbus’s leading organizations and companies who are diligently working to move the needle in favor of women who strive to thrive. #THRIVECOLUMBUS2019
