Women For Philanthropy Luncheon

Thursday, April 18, 2024 11:30 am

The Women for Philanthropy Luncheon presented by SEI offers a premier networking opportunity for female leaders and philanthropists committed to making a difference in the world. Participants will engage in intriguing conversations, share innovative solutions, and find inspiration from like-minded women, and may attend either in person or virtually. This year’s luncheon features remarks from First Lady Kathryn Burgum. As First Lady, Kathryn's priority is supporting and developing initiatives to eliminate the shame and stigma of the chronic disease of addiction in North Dakota's communities.

Proceeds from this event will support the Women for Philanthropy Scholarship, which was established to inspire philanthropy and stronger connections to the University of North Dakota. UND annually awards two scholarships of $2,000 to outstanding students.

About Kathryn Burgum

In long-term recovery for 22 years, she shares her personal experience and encourages others to do the same to normalize the conversation around the disease of addiction. She is spreading the word that addiction is a chronic disease and not a character flaw. Kathryn actively supports the Office of Recovery Reinvented as the chair of the Advisory Council. Her advocacy work has enabled her to partner with advocates, experts in the field, and stakeholders nationwide including the White House, Faces and Voices of Recovery, the Addiction Policy Forum, and Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation where she serves on the board of trustees.
