Event description

Description

Are you looking for a group or forum that will provide opportunities for thoughtful, meaningful conversation and connection? Inspired by the Enlightenment Salons of the 18th century, the DC Chapter of the Alumnae Network for Harvard Women (ANHW) and the DC Chapter of YaleWomen are co-hosting a series of Salons. The idea is to get together periodically with other curious, engaging women in a relaxed atmosphere to reflect and share perspectives on topics that are important to participants. This will be an evening of great company, lively dialogue, and vino and other happy hour fare. Before each meeting we will provide links to one or more internet articles for participants to read in advance (less than one hour total reading time). We will experiment with different formats for small and larger group discussion, and elicit feedback to inform future meetings.

This event is limited to women alumnae of Harvard and Yale.
