The Pathways to Leadership Fund was created to honor the inclusive thinking and enthusiasm of Dr. Suzan D. Boyd. Dr. Boyd is an inclusive thinker who created her own roadmap and relentlessly drove organizations to succeed. She is truly a model of the impact one woman can have while following her own unique course. Learn more about Dr. Boyd.

The fund helps to underwrite seminars, conferences, and workshops that help South Carolina women harness Dr. Boyd’s enthusiasm for moving South Carolina forward and build confidence and skills to break barriers they face when seeking leadership positions. 

The fund is supported by generous gifts from individuals and organizations starting at the $2,500 level. Your financial commitment enables women across our State to increase their knowledge of leadership and their willingness to serve.
