    Quantum Leap:  Networking To Achieve Your Dreams is designed to help you turn your bold, audacious dreams into achievable reality. At this event you will succinctly share your long-term goal and what you need to help you make a “quantum leap forward.”  Other women will offer you ideas and resources to help you achieve your goal rapidly. With the amazing women in our community, you will access an extraordinary network of knowledge, experience and contacts to help you on your way. 

    A YaleWoman who is also a Harvard graduate enjoyed this event so much that she asked us to include Harvard alumnae this year. We agreed, and so this year Harvard women will join us, further expanding our community and enriching the range of support available to you.

    YaleWoman Eleanor LeCain designed this event as an effective and fun way for women to support each other, so that we can enjoy greater personal success and greater impact in the world. She has offered this event for many women's groups where it has energized women in support of each other with amazing results.

    If you are unsure of your long-term goal, come anyway; we have a process that can help you get more clarity.

    This is a YaleWomen DC networking/lunch event open to all members of our community and to women graduates of Harvard.

    Early bird ticket price is $30, which includes a catered lunch.

    Questions? Please contact Eleanor LeCain, Founding Chair of YaleWomen DC at emlecain@gmail.com

Many of her papers and artifacts are housed at the Smithsonian. Yale graduate Peggy Kidwell will share some of the museum's collection and also speak about the life of Dr. Hopper.  Casual lunch to follow, attendees to cover costs of their meal.
