USC OWN IT is a student-run organization that aims to connect the undergraduate students of the University of Southern California to powerful and inspiring female leaders while expanding their network of mentors and peers in a wide variety of fields.
Our mission is to bridge the gap between female leaders of the 21st century and the millennials who admire them by shaking up the women’s leadership arena and producing game-changing opportunities for college-age women.
Through a leadership summit which will highlight keynote speakers, main-stage panels, breakout sessions, and a networking marketplace during lunch, OWN IT hopes to inspire the next generation of women.

Last year’s summit was a sold-out success, and for USC OWN IT 2021, we expect 800 attendees!
Our fifth annual summit will be taking place on April 10-11th, 2021, and given the current state of the pandemic, we’ve decided to move the entire summit to a virtual format.
USC OWN IT is currently looking for recruiters to be featured in our Networking Marketplace, where companies can schedule time slots to speak directly to summit attendees.
We envision this as an opportunity for recruiters to promote their company, speak to students, and perhaps identify potential candidates.
If you are interested, please reach out to Lauren Householder, Director of Logistics, by email,, or phone, 480-544-5705.
