Alpha Phi Foundation



Susan Weiskittle Barrick Endowment for Leadership Enrichment

Established in 2012, the Susan Weiskittle Barrick Endowment for Leadership Enrichment creates a unique opportunity - through speakers and other special programming - for the leadership development and intellectual fellowship of all Alpha Phi women.

The Barrick Endowment creates a platform to teach advanced leadership skills, address leadership issues and barriers, and further the understanding of women's leadership to enhance the development of female leaders in various disciplines and throughout the world. It allows Alpha Phi to return to its historic role of participation in a larger dialogue about the important issues of our time, specifically the empowerment of women.

This Endowment is designed to connect, educate and inspire Alpha Phi women of all ages and backgrounds by providing entertaining and unique experiences that fuel ideas, productivity and achievement. It is intended to expand the leadership development of participants beyond the classroom, work and home.
