2023 Women for Philanthropy Luncheon

The Women for Philanthropy Luncheon is a premier networking opportunity for female leaders and philanthropists. We strive to create a community of women who are committed to making a difference in the world. You will have the opportunity to participate in intriguing conversations, share innovative solutions, and find inspiration from like-minded women. You may attend this luncheon in-person or virtually.

This year’s luncheon features remarks from Marilyn (Koble) Vetter, '88. Marilyn was recently named the president and CEO of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, the nation’s leading upland habitat conservation organization. She is the first female to hold this position. Marilyn’s charge is to expand and diversify the organization’s $100 million budget, develop and grow the passionate 450-person team, and expand awareness of their critical work.

She is also the president and owner of Inspired Strategic Solutions, LLC, a consulting firm that specializes in helping businesses craft comprehensive strategic approaches that drive progress and create measurable results.

Marilyn’s extensive leadership in product access and valuation, risk mitigation, government affairs and policy, and corporate social responsibility (CSR) provides companies and boards valuable insights on how innovation, technology/market fit, and strategy deliver consumer satisfaction.
