Address will be provided in event registration confirmation

As Cornell junior and senior women near the end of their academic careers, they have many questions about their future after Cornell and would like advice from other women who have been in this same position. This event will feature an open conversation between the female students and the alumnae who attend. Whether you are working now, looking for a job, retired, a home maker, or in another position, if you would like to help advise these women on their futures then we would like for you to attend! You may even hear some great advice from the other attendees. There is no charge to attend and a light lunch will be served.

Please note that attendees are asked to provide a short bio with their career history and contact information that will be distributed to the guests so that you can stay connected with each other after the event.

For event questions, please contact Ruth Trezevant Cyrus ’79 at rtc26@cornell.edu.
