    Ever wonder what it's like for a YaleWoman to run for congress in Northern California? Here's the scoop!

    October 13, 7-8pm PT - click to RSVP

    Talking to Brynne Kennedy,who is running for Northern California's 4th district, felt like running into an amazing Yale classmate that you didn't remember from "back in the day." The kind of person you just want to keep asking questions to and getting to know better.

    I'd probably start with these questions:

    What's it really like to run for congress? 

    Is it harder as a woman to run/get heard?

    What motivates you to see the problems around your area and think, I could be a better solution?

    What the best/worst part about running? What was the biggest surprise for you?

    Well these are my questions – what are yours? I wanted to give you that opportunity to ask!

    So please come for our up close and intimate chat with Brynne Kennedy THIS TUESDAY about what it's really like to run for congress in today's world, in a Covid world, and with a male dominated congress.

    To join the call October 13th, 7-8pm PT - just hit reply or click here and I'll send you the Zoom link.

    Brynne Kennedy earned her Bachelors Degree from Yale University, her MBA from the London Business School, and speaks Mandarin and French. She lives in Roseville, California. An accomplished businesswoman, Kennedy is the founder of Topia – a software company that has pioneered new tools to help more businesses compete in a changing economy, while helping tens of thousands of workers transition into new jobs and communities.

    She was raised in a rural community that struggled in the aftermath of manufacturing plant closures. Her father was a community college teacher, the first in his family to attend college and a military veteran. Her mother runs a small-town store. Since leaving Topia, Kennedy has emerged as one of America’s leading voices on the effects of technology on the workplace, and for policies that enable more workers and businesses to acquire the skills and support to compete in the 21st century. She’s a former columnist for the Financial Times and her first book was published by McGraw-Hill in October of 2019.

    Glorious Boy

    “Reminiscent of the tone and atmosphere of Somerset Maugham and George Orwell’s Asia-set novels, Glorious Boy is a Second World War story of adventure and loss, uniquely set in the Andaman Islands, one of India’s farthest flung territories” – Asian Review of Books

    It’s 1942. The Japanese have invaded Burma and are closing in on India. After five years in the remote Andaman Islands, aspiring anthropologist Claire Durant and her husband Shep, a civil surgeon, must evacuate with their beloved but mysteriously mute four-year-old, Ty. They cannot, however, take Naila, the local girl whose ability to communicate with Ty has made them dangerously dependent on her. The morning of the evacuation, both children disappear. With time running out, Shep forces Claire onto the ship while he stays behind to find their son. But just days after landing in Calcutta, Claire learns that the Japanese have taken the Andamans—and cut off all access to her missing family. In the desperate odyssey that follows, Claire, Shep, and Naila will all take unimaginable risks while drawing deeply from their knowledge of these unique islands to save their beloved “glorious boy.”

    Praise for Glorious Boy:

    “Evokes every side in a multi-cultural conversation with sympathy and rare understanding.” – Pico Iyer

    One of the NY Post’s “Best Books of the Week”

    College admissions can feel like a black box. Yet it's a black box where everyone you know has an opinion.

    Should you apply early? Do the essays really matter? And of course now with Covid, do you still need to take the ACT/SATs? What happens if you don't?

    For most YaleWomen alums with high schoolers starting to think about college, it's been a long time since we were "in the process," and so much has changed.

    Luckily for you, we pulled together 3 amazing experts for our panel on demystifying the college admissions process.

    Please join us for this information-rich panel with plenty of time for Q&A so that you can get all your quesitons answered...And from the comfort of your own home. What's not to love?

    P.S. If your good friend is going through the same confusion or uncertainty, feel free to share this event with them as well.

She has also volunteered at a number of community based organizations and high schools serving low income and first generation college applicants.

She then served as a College Access Fellow at 12+, where she worked closely with high school juniors and seniors, helping them interpret financial aid packages and guiding them through the often difficult college search and selection process.

    YW-Houston From Suffrage to the Pandemic Homeschooling Crisis: Gendering Civic Engagement

    The YaleWomen Houston Chapter invites you to a discussion (via Zoom) with 

    Dr. Elizabeth Gregory PhD ‘89

    From Suffrage to the Pandemic Homeschooling Crisis: Gendering Civic Engagement

    Sunday, September 20, 3-4 PM CST

    In her recent article in The Nation, Dr. Gregory suggests that using “the Covid-19 crisis to transform national family, education, and work policies would jump-start real education equity and a culture and economy of care.”

    She points out that, a century after women finally achieved the basic right of suffrage, women still lack representation on court benches, in legislatures, and on corporate boards. “There are few in office advocating for women’s issues in this COVID moment, so the wider community must address the national homeschooling catastrophe families are facing, the burden of which falls largely on women.” 

    Dr. Gregory will discuss these and other issues with us, and will respond to questions. 

    Please RSVP to Anne Furse (annesfurse@gmail.com) by September 16th; Zoom log-in details will be sent to registrants the day before the event.

    Dr. Gregory directs the Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies program and the Institute for Research on Women, Gender & Sexuality at the University of Houston, where she is a professor of English. Her research focuses on both American modernist poetry and women’s work and fertility; her current work explores the economics of gender, with a focus on Houston.

    YW-CT Connecticut Historical Society: 100th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage

    Word of this event spread before we were able to get it to you by blast email and it immediately “sold out.” This is a private tour of the storage and collections areas of the Connecticut Historical Society – small spaces that are not normally open to the public – maximum capacity for the tour is 14 people. We have started a wait list – to be included on the list, email Susan Lennon at susan.lennon@outlook.com.  (If there is sufficient interest, perhaps we can persuade the Museum to offer a second private tour at another time!)

    Do you know that the 50WomenAtYale150 celebrations coincide with the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women's constitutional right to vote?

    Join YaleWomen Connecticut in celebrating 50WomenAtYale150 – the 50th anniversary of the coeducation of Yale College and the 150th anniversary of the Graduate & Professional Schools!

    Saturday, January 18, 2020

    One Elizabeth Street

    Hartford, CT

    Immediately preceding the tour, there will be a potluck -- light lunch and sweet treats – at Susan Lennon’s home, just up the street from the Museum (address will be provided to attendees).

    RSVP to Susan at susan.lennon@outlook.com no later than January 11, 2020.

    The Connecticut Historical Society (located in Hartford, which was front and center in the suffragette movement) has generously offered YaleWomen Connecticut a limited capacity (maximum capacity is 14 people), private tour of "Behind-the-Scenes Tour: The Fight For Women’s Suffrage In Connecticut" at 3 pm, Saturday, January 18, 2020. 

    How did the women of Connecticut work for – or against – the right to vote? In this behind-the-scenes program, we’ll look at photos, letters and pamphlets from the Museum’s collection to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. You’ll learn about suffragists like Katherine Houghton Hepburn (mother of Katharine Hepburn, who grew up in Hartford), Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some Connecticut women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote (what was up with them?).

    This tour will take guests into storage and collections areas of the Museum not normally open to the public.

    $10 CHS members, $15 for non-members. Tours last approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up.

    Quand les artistes dessinaient les cartes. Vues et figures de l’espace français Moyen Âge et Renaissance

    When Artists Drew Maps. Views and Figures of France in the Middle Ages and Renaissance

    In celebration and commemoration of 50WomenAtYale150 join YaleWomen France for a distinctive event that shines a light on women. Join us at the National Archives for a tour of When Artists Drew Maps. Views and Figures of France in the Middle Ages and Renaissance with Camille Serchuk (MA ’86,MPhil ’88, PhD ‘97), who collaborated with Juliette Dumasy-Rabineau and Nadine Gastaldi to create this exhibition.

    When:

    Tuesday, December 17, 2019

    Schedule:

    11:00 am            Meet in the lobby of the National Archives for the Tour

    12:30 noon         Optional lunch gathering nearby

    Register no later than Sunday, December 15

    RSVP to Victoria Bridges Moussaron at v.bridges.moussaron@free.fr 

    Soar over or explore the cities and countryside of medieval and Renaissance France. Discover another kind of cartography, one at the confluence of surveying, observation and art that appears at the end of the Middle Ages and beginning of the Early Modern period (14th - 16th century).. This is what the exhibition When Artists Drew Maps. Views and Figures of France in the Middle Ages and Renaissance invites us to do.

    Archives and libraries conserve a large number of maps, plans, and views of territories from all over France, produced between 1300 and 1600. They reveal, quite literally, the landscapes of France at that time. The exhibition will present some the most beautiful examples of these images.

    Many of these so-called “figures” were made by painters, including some of the most famous artists of their day (Jean Cousin, Bernard Palissy, Nicolas Dipre...). The images are thus at the intersection of art and cartography. Most of them are exhibited to the general public for the first time, providing exceptional insight into the landscapes and contexts of daily life at the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance.

    In the age of GPS, Google View and Google Earth, which have renewed our ability to comprehend a large space with the help of an image, these visual maps should not surprise us; instead, they should make us think about our relationship to space and our confidence in its representation. With this exhibition, the Archives nationales aims to bring to light these little-known documents, most of which are on public display for the first time.

    YWLA Blue Reads Book Club Dec 8 - Once Removed

    Please join us for a YaleWomen BlueReads Book Club discussion and Q&A with Colette Sartor, author of the linked short story collection Once Removed, which won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction.

    When: Sunday, December 8th, 6pm-8pm

    Where: A private residence in Beverlywood, address upon RSVP

    Note: Maximum Capacity is 50 – so please sign up as early as possible. And, if you later find you cannot come, please be sure to cancel your RSVP to open a seat for another.

    Colette Sartor, Yale ’88, has published award-winning short stories and personal essays in the Chicago Tribune, Kenyon Review Online, Colorado Review, and numerous other publications. A writing instructor for almost twenty years, Colette currently teaches at the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and the Los Angeles Writers’ Grotto as well as privately. She lives in LA with her husband, son, and very large German Shepherd dog who’s afraid of the wind.

    Once Removed

    The women in the linked short story collection Once Removed carry the burdens imposed in the name of intimacy―the secrets kept, the lies told, the disputes initiated―as well as the joy that can still manage to triumph. A singer with a damaged voice and an assumed identity befriends a silent, troubled child; an infertile law professor covets a tenant’s daughterly affection; a new mother tries to shield her infant from her estranged mother’s surprise Easter visit; an aging shopkeeper hides her husband’s decline and a decades-old lie to keep her best friends from moving away.

    With depth and an acute sense of the fragility of intimate connection, Colette Sartor creates stories of women that resonate with emotional complexity. Some of these women possess the fierce natures and long, vengeful memories of expert grudge holders. Others avoid conflict at every turn, or so they tell themselves. For all of them, grief lies at the core of love.

    Learn more about Colette and find links to purchase Once Removed here: https://colettesartor.com/books/

    WHAT TO BRING:

    • A copy of the book, if you want to have it signed by Colette.
    • Something for the potluck – food, beverage, paper plates… Once RSVP’d, we will reach out to coordinate your “offering.
    • Questions to ask Colette during the Q&A portion of this evening.

    We greatly look forward to seeing you at this event!

    YW-CT PERIOD. End of Sentence

    “PERIOD. End of Sentence”

    Viewing of the Oscar winning documentary film

    Q&A with executive producer Sophie Ascheim ’22

    Packing party

    Wednesday, November 6, 2019

    7:30 p.m. on the Yale Campus (the location will be shared with registrants)

    Join us for an event that combines education, community service, and the opportunity to hear from and mingle with an Oscar winner and other talented Yale undergraduates. We will learn about ways to reduce period poverty and period stigma both globally and in the New Haven community!  As Sophie Ascheim ’22 found out when she was in high school, girls in the developing world who lack clean menstrual supplies often develop infections and other health problems and drop out of school.  Along with teachers and parents, Sophie and two friends started a nonprofit, The Pad Project, and made a movie to change this. “Period. End of Sentence” shows how making low-cost pads with a specially designed machine empowered women and improved the economy in a rural Indian village. Earlier  this year the film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short.

    But period poverty is not exclusive to  the developing world.  Homeless and poor girls and women in the United States, including New Haven, also lack the products they need to handle their periods confidently.  After viewing the documentary and engaging in a Q&A with Sophie, we will  have a “packing party,” in which we will assemble kits of menstrual products that will be donated to New Haven agencies. 

    We’ll make the kits alongside members of PERIOD@Yale, a student chapter of the national PERIOD organization, the largest youth-run nonprofit in women’s health.  PERIOD@Yale members will order the menstrual supplies ahead of time from the national organization.  There is a $5 cash registration fee, to be collected at the door, that will reimburse the Yale chapter for obtaining the supplies. Donations larger than $5 are most welcome.

    Prior to viewing the film, we’ll have an optional, pay-as-you-go dinner at Yorkside Pizza at 6:00 p.m.  The event itself will start at 7:30 p.m. at a location to be announced to registrants.

    Please RSVP by October 30th using the RSVP on this site below. 

    If you will also join before for dinner, please email Suzanne Solensky at ssolensky@aya.yale.edu

    Registration is limited to 100 people.

    Co-sponsored by by Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance – New England (YANA), Yale School of Nursing Alumni Association, and 1stGenYale.

    "The strongest creature on earth is not the elephant, not the tiger, but the girl."

    We are excited to feature Kate Walsh, Yale '77 B.A., '79 M.P.H, as the guest speaker for YaleWomen Boston's annual fall event and celebration of 50WomenatYale150. Kate is President and CEO of Boston Medical Center, a private, not-for-profit academic medical center that disproportionately serves low-income patients and anchors the BMC Health System with an operating revenue of $2.8 billion. In her role, Ms. Walsh leads the BMC and the Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan, which provides health insurance and access to care to nearly 300,000 low-income individuals. In partnership with the dean of the Boston University School of Medicine, she oversees the school’s faculty practice plan. After earning her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Yale, Ms. Walsh served in a variety of positions in New York City hospitals. She returned to her home city of Boston in 1988, first as an assistant general director in medical services at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). During a fourteen-year tenure at MGH she advanced twice, ultimately becoming senior vice president of medical services and of the MGH Cancer Center. Prior to her current role, Ms. Walsh served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Brigham Health and as chief operating officer of Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research. She is chair of the Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems for the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the immediate past chair of the Massachusetts Hospital Association. She is also director of the Boston Public Health Commission, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and Pine Street Inn, a Boston-based organization that supports and advocates for homeless individuals. Ms. Walsh has served on the University Council and was a non-trustee member of the Yale Corporation Committee on the School of Medicine prior to her election as an alumni fellow in 2017.

    Thanks to Beth H. Mitchell, Yale '83 B.A., Boston law firm Nutter McLennen & Fish will be hosting at their beautiful Seaport offices for an early evening of conversation about health care, women at Yale, and light fare. We will also provide more information on joining YaleWomen Boston's chapter leadership.

    YW-MA "Yale Needs Women" Book Tour Comes to Cambridge!

    "If Yale was going to keep its standing as one of the top two or three colleges in the nation, the availability of women was an amenity it could no longer do without." In the winter of 1969, from big cities to small towns, young women across the country sent in applications to Yale University for the first time. The Ivy League institution dedicated to graduating "one thousand male leaders" each year had finally decided to open its doors to the nation's top female students. The landmark decision was a huge step forward for women's equality in education. Or was it?

    About the Author:

    Anne Gardiner Perkins is an award-winning historian and expert in higher education. She graduated from Yale University, where she won the Porter Prize in history and was elected the first woman editor in chief of the Yale Daily News. Perkins is a Rhodes Scholar who received her PhD in higher education from the University of Massachusetts Boston and her master's in public administration from Harvard, where she won the Littauer Award for academic excellence and served as a teaching fellow in education policy. She has presented papers on the history of higher education at leading academic conferences and been a visiting scholar at the New England Resource Center for Higher Education. Perkins lives with her husband in Boston.

    Ashton Applewhite

    What if discrimination on the basis of age were as unacceptable as any other kind of prejudice? Ashton Applewhite is a leading voice in an emerging movement dedicated to dismantling ageism and making age a criterion for diversity. The author of This Chair Rocks and a TED2017 mainstage speaker, she reveals the untapped possibilities of late life – in our communities, at work, and in ourselves.

    Why is society’s view of aging so grim when the lived reality is so different? In her book This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism, Ashton Applewhite declares that it’s time to dismantle the last acceptable prejudice; it’s time for age pride. Her manifesto is so popular that Macmillan launched its brand new imprint with it in 2019. In her candid talks – as she does on her blog, This Chair Rocks, and her Q&A Tumblr, Yo, Is This Ageist? – she debunks our culture’s most pervasive myths about getting older. And with her funny, straight-talking approach, audiences realize the often-overlooked benefits of advanced age, championing the need for greater age-based diversity in the workplace and our institutions. 

    In 2018, Applewhite was named a member of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts’ “100” list. In 2016, Applewhite joined the PBS site Next Avenue’s annual list of 50 Influencers in Aging as their Influencer of the Year. She has been recognized by the New York Times, the New Yorker, NPR, and the American Society on Aging as an expert on ageism. She has written for Harper’sThe New York Times, and The Guardian. And she speaks widely, at venues that have ranged from universities and community centers to the Library of Congress and the United Nations.

    Her first serious book, Cutting Loose: Why Women Who End Their Marriages Do So Well, was published by HarperCollins in 1997. It was inspired by the puzzlement: why was our notion of women’s lives after divorce so different from the happy and energized reality? Ms. magazine called it “rocket fuel for launching new lives.” Writing under the name Blanche Knott, Applewhite is also the author of the humor collection Truly Tasteless Jokes, a best-selling paperback of 1982. She was a clue on Jeopardy (“Who is the author of truly tasteless jokes?” Answer: “Blanche Knott.”) And as Blanche made publishing history by occupying four of the fifteen spots on The New York Times bestseller list.

    Applewhite holds a bachelor’s degree from Kirkland College.

    Diane T. Ashley

    Diane T. Ashley was, most recently, a vice president and the Chief Diversity Officer in the executive office of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY). She was also director of FRBNY’s Dodd-Frank Act mandated Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI). An industry leader with more than 20 years of experience in diversity-related roles, Ashley launched the Federal Reserve System’s (FRS) first Office of Diversity and Inclusion in 2007. 

    A member of the Executive Leadership Council (ELC) since 2004, Ashley completed two terms as a board member. The ELC is the preeminent membership organization committed to increasing the number of global black executives in C-Suites, on corporate boards and in global enterprises. She is a Charter planning member of the ELC Women’s Leadership Forum. Notably, in 2010, she hosted ELC women to a private conversation with then-Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.  She has been an active member on six non-profit boards. She currently serves on the boards of Rutgers University School of Business and the New York Theological Seminary, an accredited graduate institution, serving as board chair from 2002-2012. 

    Prior to joining the New York Fed in July 2007, Ashley worked for Citigroup for 10 years, with her last position being a senior vice president leading efforts in diversity recruitment, workforce diversity, and director of the supplier diversity program. Under her leadership, Citi’s spending with women and minorities increased from $400MM to $1B, with two pilot programs established in Europe.

    Ashley holds a bachelor's degree in French from Yale University, a master's degree in human resources education from Boston University, and a juris doctorate degree from Rutgers University School of Law.

    Leslie Morrison Faerstein

    Leslie Morrison Faerstein is Executive Director of amazing.community, which is committed to expanding the work horizon for women by transforming the narrative about aging and innovation by redefining inclusive workplaces and equipping women 50+ to thrive in them.

    As the first Executive Director of amazing.community, Faerstein has led the effort to create innovative programming, conferences,  training, and online resources to assist women 50+ in the workforce. A recent event, Inclusion by Design Equal Pay Day 2019, brought together leaders from the public, private, and civic sectors to discuss gender pay equity and ways to achieve the goal of achieving wage parity.  

    With more than 40 years of experience in nonprofit administration, Faerstein has established and grown several different organizations (mental health, arts in health care, and voluntarism in urban schools). She also has a small private psychotherapy practice specializing in aging women, eating disorders, and trauma.

    Faerstein holds a bachelor’s degree from Beloit College, a MS in Social Work from Columbia University School of Social Work, and an EdD in Family and Community Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.

    Andean Fire Ceremony YWLA

    ANDEAN FIRE CEREMONY

    Sunday, April 28, 7pm-9pm

    Please R.S.V.P. below

    At a private residence in Westwood - address will be sent upon r.s.v.p.

    Fire ceremonies are at the core of many shamanic traditions as a way to gather energies of Community and Nature, supporting us all to cleanse, redirect, and transform.

    This event offers an opportunity to experience a traditional fire ceremony as practiced in the Peruvian High Andes. A guided inner exploration will open a window to reflect upon what attachments and patterns are ready to be released, and what healthy energies, feelings, and dreams desire to be called in.

    Each participant will be invited to imbue their intentions symbolically into wooden sticks. These will be brought to the fire. The elders taught that when wood is burned, the energy held within is released.

    Stepping into the fire circle, one will step into a ritual space—a space of non-ordinary consciousness–and be informed by the alchemical energy of the fire.

    WHAT TO BRING:

    A rattle, shaker, or drum if you have one.

    Two (2) wooden sticks (dry).

    To be used for different purposes.

    Wool yarn or cotton thread, ribbon, etc. (nothing that has plastic in it)

    Fresh flowers, herbs

    Wear comfortable clothing

    ABOUT YOUR FACILITATOR:

    Susan Reiner, a Yale alum, is a Shamanic practitioner. She has studied around the world with indigenous medicine people, from above the Arctic Circle to the jungles of Peru, and was initiated into the ancient Quechuan wisdom tradition in the holy mountains of the High Andes.

    Her goal as a teacher, healer, and artist is to awaken each individual to the true essence of their individual power and beauty, uncovering the indigenous wisdom that resides in all of us. 

    With this clarity comes peace, grace, and harmony for our living planet and all of its elements.

    YaleWomen Philly Hidden City Tour

    Hidden City Philadelphia: North Central Philly Lost & Found

    Please join us for a YaleWomen Philly and YBAA-Philadelphia co-sponsored private tour with the Hidden City Philadelphia Cultural Trust, on Saturday, April 27 from 11:00am - 1:00pm. Guests are welcome. This tour is limited to the first 25 registrants, so don’t delay in securing your admission! Tickets for this event are $25, a portion of which goes to the Church of the Advocate, pictured above.

    The Tour

    For stunning late Victorian Gothic Revival architecture combined with fascinating social history, it's tough to beat Church of the Advocate at 18th and Diamond, the final stop on this tour but the first thing we want to tell you about (we didn't want to bury the lede!). The church's progressive social practices began at its founding with the abolition of "pew rents" and reached their height in the 1960s and 70s when it hosted the Conference of Black Power, the Black Panther Conference and the first ordination of women in the Episcopal church. We'll step inside the church's magnificent sanctuary, where a series of 14 murals painted in the 1970s depict scenes from the African-American experience in the company of guide Judith Robinson, a longtime resident of neighboring Strawberry Mansion.

    The tour will begin at Broad and Master, site of famed 19th century Shakespearean actor Edwin Forrest's mansion and now home to the Freedom Theater. We'll walk up Broad Street from there, and talk about Father Divine, the Columbia Avenue riots, Reverend Leon Sullivan's program of African-American economic empowerment, the long lost Monument Cemetery, Temple University's recent construction and expansion plans, plus a whole lot more. You'll never look at Philly the same way again. We guarantee it!

    About Hidden City Philadelphia

    Do you know? (sources: various)

    • Homelessness is one of our nation’s most misunderstood and vexing social problems. Homelessness does not discriminate. Families with children, single adults, teenagers and older individuals of all races struggle with the devasting effects of homelessness.
    • More families experience homelessness in the United States than in any other industrialized nation. Thirty-five percent (35%) of homeless persons are in family households (typically a single mother with two young children). Families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population.
    • One in 30 American children experience homelessness annually; 51% are under age five. More than 2.5 million children are homeless each year.
    • Thirty-one percent (31%) of all homeless people are youths under the age of 24.
    • While the number of veterans experiencing homelessness has decreased, veterans make up approximately 95% of all homeless adults – 90.8% are men and 8.5% are women.
    • The lack of affordable housing is a primary cause of homelessness. (Homelessness and poverty are inextricably linked, affecting the ability to pay for housing, food, childcare, health care and education.)
    • Domestic violence is also a primary cause of homelessness. Ninety-two percent (92%) of homeless women have experienced severe physical or sexual abuse at some point in their lives, and 63% have been victims of intimate partner violence as adults.

    @exuberance offers invitation-only house salons once or twice a month in a modernist warehouse conversion to audiences who are all about the music. Cameras, cell phones—even talking—are prohibited once the music starts. The high ceiling and sound treatment yield ideal acoustics. And a recent vintage 7-foot Steinway sounds magnificent always. Artists and audiences are diverse and united in our love for this music.

    Exuberance asks for $25 donation at the door to support both the musicians and the refreshments. This incredible price will get us up-close seats in a private home, as well as tickets for two beverages to be enjoyed over the course of the evening. We are opening this up to YW members and their guests, so grab a jazz buddy and come enjoy what promises to be a fantastic evening of jazz and camaraderie. 

    Please RSVP no later than March 18  as we will need to release at that time any unclaimed seats we are holding.

    To whet your appetite -- do you know?

    This is a story that has launched more than three dozen search and recovery missions, and over the past 170+ years it has inspired novels, plays, songs, and TV shows such as the 2017 horror series Terror. Margaret Atwood called it the origin myth of disasters for Canadians. This is the first comprehensive exhibit on the Franklin Expedition since the ships were located, and travels to Mystic from London and Ottawa before moving on to Alaska. Learn the story and see the artifacts, some recovered from the shipwrecks as recently as 2016. All the major angles are covered, including:

    • History – Possessed with a vast navy and extremely confident of its sailing prowess, Victorian England was obsessed with the Arctic, which represented their biggest hope of traversing the Northwest Passage, the much desired, possibly faster, trade route from Europe to Asia. In May 1845, Sir John Franklin and his 128-member crew set sail from London, England aboard HMS Erebus and Terror. They were last seen by Europeans in Baffin Bay, off the southwest corner of Greenland in July 1845. The enduring mystery of the Franklin Expedition is still unraveling.
    • Anthropology and Indigenous Rights – Inuit oral histories have played a significant role in uncovering the fate of the Franklin Expedition. Their critical contributions include both traditional knowledge and oral histories relating to the European exploration of the Arctic Archipelago, which you can listen to on audio stations interspersed throughout the exhibition, and historical artifacts, some of which incorporated materials of European origin, which were traded from explorers or retrieved from abandoned ships.
    • Underwater Archaeology – Parks Canada divers give a video tour of one wreck, and you’ll see the unbroken plates, glass bottles, and other daily items they’ve recovered from this remote dive site. With a short dive season entirely dependent on weather in the remote Canadian Arctic, each year the archaeologists plan for the worst, but hope to get even a few days on the wrecks to explore, document, and recover more evidence of what happened onboard.
    • Forensics – In examining tissues collected from human remains recovered from Beechey Island, forensic anthropologists found that the amount of lead in the bones of some of the men was exponentially high, leading to the theory that lead poisoning may have been one of the factors contributing to the expedition’s demise. Other factors include scurvy and starvation, and perhaps cannibalism. DNA analysis has also matched crew members with descendants.
    • Climate change – As the Northwest Passage has become more accessible to ships and boats of all types, the race to find and preserve the Franklin Expedition ships and camp sites has intensified. Learn how the Expedition suffered due to unexpectedly thick seasonal ice that trapped their ships even in the summer.

    High Performance Habits by Brendon Bouchard

    Everyone self-reflects at the beginning of a new year and commits to completing a new set of resolutions. This year, try something new. Bring your resolutions and meet with a small, tight knit group of Yale Women who will hold you accountable for the growth necessary to achieve them.

    Yale Women is dedicated to educating and elevating personal performance and leadership qualities by increasing knowledge and skills in the areas of high performance, authentic leadership and gender intelligence. If you can’t shake that feeling that you aren’t quite where you wanted or expected to be in life, this group is for you.

    We have a treasure trove of deeply knowledgeable, committed and successful women who have likely faced, overcome or helped others overcome the same issues. If you can define for yourself where you want to be, your fellow Yale Women will help you stay accountable for moving forward.

    This is more than a “book club” it’s a venue for members to gain a deeper insight into themselves through the books we read and be held accountable for follow-through skill building that will help each of us move from our current state closer to our desired future state.

    We meet bi-monthly on the second Sunday beginning January 13th from 1-3pmat First Watch in Meyerland Plaza Area. Reach out to your host, Stefani Kirchhoff, with any questions (stefani.kirchhoff@yahoo.com).

    The first growth challenge for each of us is to mine High Performance Habits by Brendon Bouchard for the habits you need to focus on in 2019 to move closer to your desired future state.

    **** Founded in 2011, YaleWomen is a community of alums – at the global and chapter levels – across Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and across years, geography and personal and professional interests as well as a broad range of different experiences, perspectives, and opinions. As part of its mission, YaleWomen is committed to advancing women’s voices and perspectives. YaleWomen encourages its members at the global, national, and local levels to advance the issues they believe in by engaging in the public policy and electoral process, advocating for changes in particular areas of society, and providing education about such matters. As a 501c3, YaleWomen must do so within the constraints imposed by IRS rules regarding prohibiting lobbying, advocacy, and partisan activity. One of YaleWomen’s greatest strengths is inclusivity – bringing together and learning from the plurality of our voices, in ways that are both respectful and civil. Inclusivity is, in fact, one of YaleWomen’s core values. The plurality of voices – Yale women alums’ voices – produces democracy! ****

    Prudence Crandall Museum

    YW-CT Museum Trail - Prudence Crandall Museum

    Prudence_Crandall_Picture.jpgYaleWomen Connecticut is happy to announce our next stop on the Museum Trail – the Prudence Crandall Museum in Canterbury, CT. Join us on Saturday, September 29 as we visit the home of New England’s first educational academy for African-American women (1833-1834). The museum is a National Historic Landmark and a State Archaeological Preserve. We will take in the general museum offerings and also enjoy a guided tour of the museum’s newest exhibit, “The Story Outlives the Canvas,” which explores the history and legacy of the famous portrait of Prudence Crandall. Our interpreter for this portion of the visit will be Lisa Joseph, the curator of the exhibit.

    Exploring the life of Prudence Crandall (1803-1890), Connecticut’s State Heroine, prompts relevant reflection on life in America throughout history. Her commitment to teaching African-American women made her a national symbol for abolition, and local response was swift and strong in its opposition. Harassment and mob violence forced the school to close in 1834. Prudence Crandall’s legacy in legislation and court battles includes the 1833 CT “Black Law”, the 1857 Dredd Scott arguments, and also the 1954 Brown Vs. Board of Education of Topeka.

    I said in my heart, here are my convictions. What shall I do? Shall I be inactive and permit prejudice, the mother of abominations, to remain undisturbed? Or shall I venture to enlist in the ranks of those who with the Sword of Truth dare hold combat with prevailing iniquity? I contemplated for a while the manner in which I might best serve the people of color. As wealth was not mine, I saw no other means of benefiting them, than by imparting to those of my own sex that were anxious to learn, all the instruction I might be able to give, however small the amount.         - PRUDENCE CRANDALL, 1833

    WHEN:
    Saturday, September 29; 10:00-11:30am Tour; 11:45 Optional Brunch at DayBreaks Diner

    Mona Bismarck American Center for Art & Culture (Avenue de New York 75016 Paris)

    Celebrating Bolcolm in Paris: Rayanne Dupuis, soprano

    Rayanne Dupuis, soprano & Guy Livingston, pianist honour the 80th birthday of a titan of American classical music, William Bolcom. William Bolcom and his wife Joan Morris will be in attendance, and Bolcom has composed for us a set of songs which we will be premiering. The music encompasses many styles - much is quite “jazzy” in feel, especially his Cabaret Songs, of which we will performing a selection. There will be a Q and A with the composer during the event and then an informal drink after the concert. It should be a properly festive event!

    It is highly advisable to reserve a spot ahead of time for the concert.  https://www.monabismarck.org/events/a-bolcom-birthday-celebration-in-song

    ***

    William Bolcom

    William Bolcom (b. 1938) is one of the most versatile contemporary American composers, writing chamber music, piano works, song cycles, concertos, music theatre, opera, and symphonies, displaying a mastery of many different compositional styles.

    Although not given to radical experimentation, he consciously avoids blindly following European styles, whether old or contemporary. He describes Charles Ives as his greatest influence, and in his operas and stage works he chooses to set pieces about American characters by American authors, and includes idioms such as ragtime and jazz in his works. In addition to this wide stylistic diversity, his works often display a trenchant sense of humor. He is also a noted performer, and in 1973 his recording of the complete piano music of Gershwin was named Stereo Review's Record of the Year. He and his wife mezzo-soprano Joan Morris have made over 20 recordings of American popular song.

    Bolcom began studying composition with John Verrall at the age of 11. After receiving his bachelor's degree from the University of Washington, he studied with Darius Milhaud at Mills College. In 1960, Milhaud took Bolcom to Paris, where he also worked with Olivier Messiaen. In 1961 Bolcom went on to study with Leland Smith at Stanford. After earning his doctorate in composition there in 1964, he won the Marc Blitzstein Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters for Dynamite Tonite, a piece that shows the influence of Milhaud and the Parisian cabarets. (His Casino Paradise, written in 1990, while still cabaret-style, shows more of an individual voice.) He returned to the Paris Conservatoire in 1964, and graduated in 1965, winning the second prize in that year's composition competition, as well as the first of two Guggenheim Fellowships. Bolcom won two Koussevitzky Foundation Awards, in 1976 and 1993, for the First Piano Quartet, and the Lyric Concerto for flute and orchestra, respectively.

    He has been commissioned by many of America's greatest musical institutions, including the orchestras of Philadelphia, St. Louis, Seattle, New York, Baltimore, Boston, and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. His commissions include numerous works for some of the greatest singers of our time, including Placido Domingo, Marilyn Horne, and Catherine Malfitano.

    In 1988, he won the Pulitzer Prize in music for his 12 New Etudes for Piano. His most ambitious composition, which occupied him for 25 years, is a complete setting of William Blake's Songs of Innocence and of Experience, for soloists, chorus, and orchestra, which received its premiere at the Stuttgart Opera in 1984. A recording of the work, featuring the orchestras and choruses of the University of Michigan conducted by Leonard Slatkin, won three Grammy Awards in 2006, for Best Choral Performance, Best Classical Contemporary Composition, and Best Classical Album. In 2007, Musical America named Bolcom composer of the year.

    Bolcom has composed three operas, commissioned by the Lyric Opera of Chicago, all of which he wrote with librettist and long-time collaborator, Arnold Weinstein. McTeague (1992), conducted by Dennis Russell Davies, starred Ben Heppner and Catherine Malfitano. Weinstein collaborated with playwright Arthur Miller on the libretto for A View from the Bridge (1999), which was subsequently presented by the Metropolitan Opera in 2002. His third opera, A Wedding, is based on the film of the same name by Robert Altman, who worked on the libretto with Weinstein. It received its premiere in Chicago in 2004. His latest opera, Dinner at Eight (based on the play by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber), was premiered in March 2017 at Minnesota Opera. The European premiere is scheduled at the Wexford Opera Festival, fall 2018.

    From 1973 to 2008, Bolcom taught at the University of Michigan. He became a full professor there in 1983, and in 1994 he was named the Ross Lee Finney Distinguished University Professor of Music. Bolcom also holds honorary doctorates from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Albion College.

    One World Trade Center

    YW-CT - Guided Tour of One World Trade Center, NYC

    Guided Tour of One World Trade Center, New York City – April 28th – YaleWomen Connecticut is thrilled to announce a Museum Trail stop for Saturday, April 28 at the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. Join NEH Public Scholar and New York Times bestseller author Judith Dupré (MDiv ‘11) on a special, behind-the-scenes tour of the Trade Center, the most complex and intensely scrutinized project in recent memory. 

    Judith will take us through the controversies, negotiations, and agreements that ultimately yielded the triumphant One World Trade Center, the most advanced skyscraper in the world—and one with an impossible task: to stand for everything that was lost, and reclaimed, after 9/11. The only writer given unfettered access to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s site, archives, and suppliers, she will share insights from the experts. You will hear about this tower and the other eight structures on the site just as Judith did—from those who designed and built it. 

    We will consider the sixteen-acre site in its entirety, and discover the many physical and symbolic connections that exist between One WTC and Two, Three, Four, and Seven World Trade Center; the National September 11 Memorial & Museum; Liberty Park; St. Nicholas National Shrine; and the Transportation Hub. Judith will address the challenges of writing about a place that is wholly new—yet irrevocably bound to the past.  

    WHEN: Saturday, April 28; 10:30 Tour with Judith Dupré

    WHERE: We will meet at northeast corner of Liberty and Greenwich Streets (Outside Four World Trade Center).

    COST: $25

    PLEASE NOTE:  Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an umbrella. If it's raining, we can take some (not all) indoor routes through the WTC.

    RSVP: to Karen Warner (karenwarner@yahoo.com) by April 20th. The minimum number for this event is 20. If we do not reach that number, the event will be cancelled.

    After the tour, we welcome everyone to gather together for an optional brunch in Eataly NYC Downtown:

    4 World Trade Center

    101 Liberty Street, Floor 3

    New York, NY 10007

    https://www.eataly.com/us_en/stores/nyc-downtown/

    Eataly has a number of dining options: various upscale food courts as well as a fine dining room. It will likely be difficult to seat the entire group in the same area, but we encourage everyone (strongly) to eat at Eataly to avoid a postprandial search expedition!

    In the afternoon you might consider visiting the following:

    • 9/11 Memorial Museum: You will need to purchase tickets in advance for this. They are $25.
    • One World Trade Center Observatory: Tickets are $34.

    Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen CT - Museum Trail - Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen would like to announce our next stop on the Museum Trail will be the (rescheduled!) visit to the historic Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, CT. Join us on Saturday, January 27 for a private tour with the museum’s Executive Director, Kathleen Maher, followed by a hard hat tour of the distinctive building's restoration.

    Conceived and constructed by American entrepreneur, showman, and politician P.T. Barnum (1810-1891), The Barnum Museum has served an international audience since 1893. P.T. Barnum's impact reaches deep into our American heritage and the story of his vast collection and contributions are preserved in his Bridgeport museum. The ornate, exotic building is a distinguishing feature of the City of Bridgeport.

    In 2010 the Barnum Museum was struck by an EF1 tornado, significantly damaging the historic landmark. The building sustained additional damage from hurricanes Irene and Sandy. While going through the re-building and re-envisioning process, a portion of the museum’s collection is on view in an ancillary space located BEHIND the museum in the adjacent People's United Bank Gallery. The 5,000-foot site houses thousands of objects that were out-loaded from the museum's historic building for safety and conservation following the tornado. Tour limited to ages 15 and up due to the rough state of the construction site.

    (Also: Barnum and Bridgeport are getting the Hollywood treatment. The Greatest Showman musical biopic starring Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum comes to theaters December 20.)

    WHEN:
    Saturday, January 27; 10:30pm Tour; 12:15 Optional Brunch

    WHERE:

    behind the Barnum Museum

    820 Main Street
    Bridgeport, Connecticut 06604

    (*The Museum offices and exhibit gallery are now located in the People's United Bank Gallery (the modern wing at the rear of the historic building). Follow signs pointing to the entrance from the plaza.)

    http://www.barnum-museum.org/

    COST:

    Estimated $25 or less ($250 honorarium will be divided by the number of attendees; 10 person minimum);

    Optional pay-as-you-go brunch at 12:15 across the street from the museum at:

Founded in 1982, the Connecticut Food Bank partners with food retailers, growers, donors and volunteers to source food and distribute it in Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham Counties through a network of community-based programs, including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, residential programs and day programs that serve adults and children. Hunger 101 gives people a taste of what food insecurity—or hunger—really is. Participants walk in someone else’s shoes and see firsthand what it’s like to struggle with poverty and food insecurity in Connecticut. Hunger 101 captures the daily stress of hunger as you learn how to feed a family for a day with limited resources.

    Date:  Saturday, November 11, 2017 

    Time:  9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

    Location:  Connecticut Food Bank, 2 Research Parkway, Wallingford, CT 06492

    This event is open to members of the YaleWomen Connecticut community and family members ages 13 and older. Space is limited.  RSVP by Friday, October 27 to Amy L. Klein ’93 BA, ’98 JD at levineal@yahoo.com. Please plan to attend both parts of the event. Please wear closed toe shoes and bring or wear a sweater in case you are working in or close to a refrigerated space. If you register and your plans change and you are no longer able to join us, please let Amy know so we can open your slot(s) to alumna on the wait list.

    **** Founded in 2011, YaleWomen is a community of alums – at the global and chapter levels – across Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and across years, geography and personal and professional interests as well as a broad range of different experiences, perspectives, and opinions. As part of its mission, YaleWomen is committed to advancing women’s voices and perspectives. YaleWomen encourages its members at the global, national, and local levels to advance the issues they believe in by engaging in the public policy and electoral process, advocating for changes in particular areas of society, and providing education about such matters. As a 501c3, YaleWomen must do so within the constraints imposed by IRS rules regarding prohibiting lobbying, advocacy, and partisan activity. One of YaleWomen’s greatest strengths is inclusivity – bringing together and learning from the plurality of our voices, in ways that are both respectful and civil. Inclusivity is, in fact, one of YaleWomen’s core values. The plurality of voices – Yale women alums’ voices – produces democracy! ****

    YaleWomen DC: October Salon

     YaleWomen DC has partnered with the DC Chapter of the Alumnae Network for Harvard Women for a second Yale/Harvard Women's Salon. Inspired by the Enlightenment Salons of the 18th century, join curious and engaging women to reflect and share perspectives on timely and meaningful topics over wine and happy hour fare.  The $7 ticket fee covers the host's costs. Based on the success of the first salon (and the waiting list for tickets), we are offering two salons in October--one in Virginia and one in Maryland. The salons will feature the same content and structure--just pick the most convenient location for you! This month's topic is "authenticity." Please read this article before our October salon:  The Authenticity Paradox

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

    There are TWO locations!  Bethesda and Arlington.  To register, use these links:

    Mystic Seaport

    (http://www.mysticseaport.org/)

    75 Greenmanville Avenue, Mystic, CT

     

    Join us as Elysa takes us on a journey at the juxtaposition of two current exhibits, On Land and On Sea and SeaChange, one a “flat” photography show featuring images of women from the last century and the other a more “experimental” approach for a history museum.

     

    As Director of Exhibits at Mystic Seaport, Elysa is responsible for creating and delivering an ongoing program of dynamic, interdisciplinary exhibits, in formal galleries, family activity spaces, and on vessels and grounds. With the opening of the new Thompson Exhibition Building (designed by Centerbrook Architects and Planners, the architectural firm that also designed Kroon Hall at the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies), and the design and production of the inaugural exhibit in the Collins Gallery, SeaChange, Elysa and her team are transforming informal learning experiences for Mystic Seaport visitors.

    On Land and On Sea: A Century of Women in the Rosenfeld Collection

     

    Professional photographers Morris Rosenfeld and Sons are best known for their stunning images of large racing yachts under sail. But they also captured images of people and everyday events, both off the water and on. On Land and On Sea: A Century of Women in the Rosenfeld Collection displays 70 images of ordinary and exceptional girls and women for the first time. From aviators and athletes to telephone operators training and suffragettes on the march in New York City, each photo provides a fascinating glimpse into the social history of 20th-century women as depicted in commercial photography, from young girls having fun messing about on small boats to fashion models and society matrons.

     

    Sea Change 

     

    SeaChange presents a range of striking, surprising, and unusual objects drawn from the rich collections of Mystic Seaport. In keeping with the bold design, clean lines, and natural materials of the Thompson Building, the exhibit design uses large, free-standing abstract structures evocative of sails or icebergs to frame each central artifact, taking advantage of the soaring heights in the Collins Gallery. The overall effect is visually stunning, an inviting space that entices visitors to contemplate, discover, discuss and return to the exhibit.  SeaChange extends the sensory approach beyond the visual. The custom-created interactives will give people the chance to peer inside a 1740s English ship model, test the principles behind dazzling World War I ship camouflage, and zoom-in to see the tiny carved cuts on modern miniature figureheads. A range of public programs will complement the gallery experience and further explore the “sea change” that links stories from around the world to our own.

    YaleWomen Webinar Lean In for Compensation: Salary Negotiation

    “I asked: ‘Why did a man and woman earn different salaries?’ He said: ‘I made the same offer. He negotiated; she accepted.’”
    Donna Dubinsky ’77, speaking at YaleWomen’s 2013 inaugural conference, “Vision, Values, Voice: Women Changing a Changing World.”

    YaleWomen presents…
    Lean In for Compensation: Salary Negotiation

    Join us for our next one-hour webinar, Lean In for Compensation: Salary Negotiation, with Deb Ellis ’78 (’82 JD, NYU School of Law).
    Friday, June 16­, 2017
    1 pm eastern

    Typically, women working full time in nearly every occupation in the United States are paid just 80% of what men are paid. For women of color and for mothers, the pay gap is even wider. (Source: http://www.aauw.org/research/the-simple-truth-about-the-gender-pay-gap/)

    Research shows that women are much less likely than men to negotiate their salaries, compounding earnings differentials throughout their careers. In this one-hour webinar, you will learn specific strategies for negotiating salary and other job benefits, including job title and workplace flexibility. You will increase your negotiating skills by observing a mock negotiation.

    Deb Ellis brings her broad experience and expertise as a teacher, women’s rights lawyer, and law school career counselor to this webinar. During her career, Deb has served as Assistant Dean for Public Service at NYU School of Law, Legal Director of the ACLU-NJ, Legal Director of NOW Legal Defense Fund, adjunct professor at Yale College and NYU School of Law, and Executive Director of the NJ Coalition to End Homelessness. Deb currently serves as Director of Operations of NJ LEEP, which helps students graduate from high school, attend and graduate from competitive colleges, and begin careers. Deb has spoken and published widely on public interest legal careers and on women’s rights, and has received several awards for her leadership in social justice, including a 2011 White House Champion of Change Award.

    Deb will engage us in a discussion of topics, including:

    • Gender differences and how they affect how women think about negotiating, whether they negotiate, and how they negotiate
    • The concept of negotiation, and how to make it a win-win experience
    • The implications of the differentials in salary and other benefits throughout a woman’s career

    You will be able to ask questions during the webinar via chat, get advice and gain a better understanding of what is available to you during the negotiating process. You can submit questions in advance by writing to info@yalewomen.org before Friday, June 9th.

    Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen CT - Museum Trail at the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport

    The next stop on the YaleWomen Museum Trail will be the historic Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, CT. Join us on Saturday, May 6 for a private tour with the museum’s Executive Director Kathleen Maher, followed by a hard hat tour of the distinctive building's restoration. Ms. Maher has over 29 years’ experience working at museums that are additionally recognized as National Historic Sites. She is considered a leading authority on P.T. Barnum history and speaks extensively on Barnum subjects throughout the United States, including at the Yale school of Art.

     

    Conceived and constructed by American entrepreneur, showman, and politician P.T. Barnum (1810-1891), The Barnum Museum has served an international audience since 1893. P.T. Barnum's impact reaches deep into our American heritage and the story of his vast collection and contributions are preserved in his Bridgeport museum. The ornate, exotic building is a distinguishing feature of the City of Bridgeport.

     

    In 2010 the Barnum Museum was struck by an EF1 tornado, significantly damaging the historic landmark. The building sustained additional damage from hurricanes Irene and Sandy. While going through the re-building and re-envisioning process, a portion of the museum’s collection is on view in an ancillary space located BEHIND the museum in the adjacent People's United Bank Gallery. The 5,000-foot site houses thousands of objects that were out-loaded from the museum's historic building for safety and conservation following the tornado. (Limited to ages 15 and up due to the rough state of the construction site.)

     

    WHEN:
    Saturday, May 6; 1:00pm Tour; 11:30 Brunch

    WHERE:

    behind the Barnum Museum

    820 Main Street
    Bridgeport, Connecticut 06604

    (*The Museum offices and exhibit gallery are now located in the People's United Bank Gallery (the modern wing at the rear of the historic building). Follow signs pointing to the entrance from the plaza.)

     

    http://www.barnum-museum.org/


    COST:

    Estimated $25 or less ($250 honorarium will be divided by the number of attendees; 10 person minimum);

    Optional pay-as-you-go brunch at 11:30 across the street from the museum at:

    First Lady Dolley Madison is often remembered as a hostess who saved the White House portrait of George Washington from British vandalism during the War of 1812.  But in fact, she was the most influential woman in America during the nation’s formative years—a national, almost mythic figure. The unheard stories come to life on this fascinating tour of artworks, books, documents, clothing, jewelry, and housewares related to the life of Dolley Madison. Experience what it is like to take part in a “Wednesday night squeezes,” her popular social gatherings that drew a wide range of people to “squeeze” into the President’s mansion and encouraged informal diplomacy.

    The New York Historical Society’s fourth floor has recently reopened as the Center for Women’s History, a cutting-edge museum and scholarship hub. This landmark initiative is the country’s first permanent, public exhibition and educational center dedicated to women’s history. It highlights the significance of women’s history to the study of the American past and demonstrate how women across the spectrum of race, class, and culture exercised power and brought about change even before they could access the ballot box. Guided by a committee of distinguished historians and informed by the latest research, the Center combines permanent installations, temporary exhibitions, and a vibrant program of talks and debates to enrich the cultural landscape of New York City.

    Russia’s Women: The Rulers and The Ruled

    The situation of women in Russia has changed dramatically from the reign of Catherine the Great through the Soviet era to the present time. It will continue to unfold – from the time we announce this event until our actual conversation – as we navigate the rapidly changing and sometimes uncertain world in which we live today.

    Join us for what will be a thought provoking conversation with

    Erin McBurney, PhD – ’81 BA, Yale College  

    and

    Nadine Fraser, MD – ’12 MPH, Yale School of Public Health

    Sunday afternoon, April 2, 2017

    2 – 4 pm

    At the Hartford home of Susan Lennon ’85 MPPM, School of Management.  The address will be provided to those who RSVP.

    RSVP no later than Sunday, March 26th to susan.lennon@outlook.com.

    Erin graduated from Yale College in 1981 and completed her doctorate in Russian History at Columbia University in 2014. She studied in Leningrad in 1979 and then returned to post-Communist Russia to conduct dissertation research. In between, she served in the US Marines, worked for the National Gallery of Art in Washington, and taught at the London School of Economics. Erin is now an independent scholar whose research focuses on female sovereignty in 18th –century Russia. She lives in Branford.

    Nadine was born in the Soviet Union, in the Far East city of Blagoveshchensk. After graduating from Amur State Medical Academy, she accepted a residency in St. Petersburg and worked in social medicine – with the most vulnerable, disabled, and chronically ill – in the midst of the full collapse of medical and public health systems in Russia in the 1990s. After marrying and moving to the US, Nadine worked with a major medical center in Western Massachusetts, first as the lead Russian interpreter for immigrant and refugee populations and later as a resident physician. After YSPH, she managed the Community Health department for the Connecticut Hospital Association, improving health equity and access to medical services for the underserved populations. Nadine now works with Hartford Healthcare Corporation improving healthcare quality as well as providing analytical support. She lives in Suffield.

    Inspired by New York City’s venerable Russian Tea Room, our potluck refreshments will be tea sandwiches (last names beginning with A through L) and sweets (last names beginning with M through Z).

    YW Northern California Book Night: "Year of Yes"

    Book Night: Year of Yes

    Why wait for New Year's Day to start fresh? Say YES to 2017 now! YaleWomen in Northern California are kicking off the New Year reading television writer and producer Shonda Rhimes' Year of Yes, her poignant, intimate, and hilarious memoir.

    Rhimes' story starts with life before her Year of Yes, beginning with her nerdy, book-loving childhood creating imaginary friends, through to her domination of Thursday night television, including Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder. But despite her wild success and general badassery, something was holding her back. She chronicles her Year of Yes challenge: when the introverted Rhimes says "yes" to giving the Dartmouth Commencement speech, "yes" to her health, "yes" to play, and "yes" to exploring, applauding, and loving her true self. Start your New Year with a "Yes" challenge and join us for Book Night in January!

    We have two confirmed gathering locations in San Francisco and Los Gatos

    Please RSVP at https://ywbooknight-rhimes.eventbrite.com. Reading not required ;-)

    We aim to organize groups throughout the Bay Area, and are limited by the number of hostesses who volunteer. Please consider hosting a small group of 6-10 Yale women. Contact us at ywnorcal@gmail.com so we can help coordinate attendees.

    YaleWomen Houston - Yale Chaplain Leah Cohen visits Houston

    Houston YaleWomen are invited to meet with

    Rabbi Leah Cohen, Executive Director and Senior Jewish Chaplain

     of the Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale University!

    She’s speaking on Thursday, January 19, 2017, at 7 pm, at Houston Hillel.

                                                       (Ida & William Zinn Building, 1700 Bissonnet Houston TX 77005)

                                                           She’ll meet with YaleWomen at 6 pm, at the same location.

    Her topic for us: Her Story

    The power of the individual example is undeniably one of our greatest assets. As women, our stories are full of courage and self-sacrifice, of hard-earned triumphs and embarrassments, of inspiring lessons and moments of insight. Come for an evening of sharing, learning and laughing together.

     

    Please join all our co-sponsors to hear her at 7 pm, too – you’ll be in great company!

    She will present on "I Have A Dream" and "Im Tirtzu**": The Call to Action in the Jewish and Black Charismatic Narratives".

     

    Refreshments (kosher) will be served!

    Thanks to all the co-sponsors, there will be no charge for this event—but we very much appreciate your prompt RSVP so we can finalize arrangements and have plenty of refreshments!

           PLEASE RSVP to Lisa Stone (lestone@aya.yale.edu) by January 16.

     

    **“Im tirtzu” means “if you will it”; it is the first part of a statement by Theodor Herzl.

    YWCA of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT

    YWUtah - Brunch with Patti Russo

    YaleWomen Utah is once again thrilled to have Patti Russo, of the Women's Campaign School at Yale (WCSYale), come visit us here in SLC on Sunday, January 15th! We will be hosting an informal potluck brunch with Patti beginning at 11:30am at the YWCA of Utah, and would ask those in attendance to bring a dish and/or beverage.

    The free event is not only for those women who might currently be interested in running for political office, but is also for those who support greater participation by women in elected office. Patti would like to cast her net wide while sharing WCSYale's message: Get Inspired! Get Trained! Get Elected!

    Patti's visit, just days before Inauguration Day, will surely be every bit as engaging and uplifting as Patti's last stop in Utah. However, as the United States now ranks 99th on the list of countries with the most women in elected office, the issue of women in politics is an urgent one, and Patti's visit takes on a more serious tone following the November elections. We are excited about all that Patti will share with us about this critical time for women in the political arena!

    Some additional information about the state of women in politics: New Republic's "For Women in Politics, the Glass Ceiling Is Now Higher Than Ever"

    The Women's Campaign School at Yale University (WCSYale) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase the number and influence of women in elected and appointed office in the United States and around the globe. Its signature program is a five day, non-partisan, issue-neutral leadership political campaign training intensive and is held at the Yale Law School. This year the Women's Campaign School at Yale University celebrates over twenty years of inspiring and training women to lead.

    YaleWomen Greater Philadelphia: Women in Politics, a Discussion

    Stepping off of our of our July conversation with Patti Russo, director of the Women’s Campaign School at Yale, and on the heels of the election, please join us as we gather to discuss how we can support women's voices and perspectives in politics from a local to a national level.

    You will remember that the Women's Campaign School at Yale University is a non-partisan, issue-neutral leadership program, whose mission is to increase the number and influence of women in elected and appointed office in the United States and around the globe. While the number of women in Congress and the House of Representatives has dramatically increased over the last 20 years, the United States still ranks 82nd worldwide in the percentage of women in our national legislature.  The recent election has not improved that statistic!

    There is plenty that can be done in addition to running for office, and we hope this conversation will help develop some ideas we can move forward with.

    YaleWomen Presents: Women in Politics Webinar

    Join YaleWomen for a lively non-partisan webinar conversation with Q&A about the importance of Women in Politics with Patricia Russo, Executive Director, Women’s Campaign School at Yale University, and Kathryn Lofton, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies, American Studies, History, Divinity, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Faculty of Arts and Sciences Deputy for Diversity and Faculty Development, Yale University.

    In 2016, women remain underrepresented in elective political office, comprising only 19.4% of the US Congress, 24.4% of statewide elective offices, and 24.6% of state legislatures.  Do you know that when women run for political office, they win at the same rate as men? But women in the United States are not running. Why not?  What barriers—both internal and external—are holding women back?  Does it matter whether women are creating the laws we live by? Do women govern differently than men? 

    Register today to join this live conversation. Send questions for the panelists to: info@yalewomen.org.

    Facebook RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/1753898071533470/

    About the book: On the evening of November 4, 2008, as news of Barack Obama's presidential victory spread, television footage depicted the emotional reactions of people across the country and the globe. As Obama gave his acceptance speech in Grant Park that night, the camera focused on those in the audience who were overjoyed, tears streaming down their faces. People cheered. Spontaneous and joyful celebrations broke out in the streets. Change had finally come.

    Analysts describe Barack Obama's success as "unheard of" -- a meteoric rise -- leaving many in the elite political circles astonished at what he had accomplished in his campaign. With his success, many questions arose: How was a junior senator from Chicago able to do this? Why does he evoke such strong reactions? What cultural shifts took place in American society for this to happen? Do we now live in a post-racial society, and what will this mean for the next generation?

    In Obama on Our Minds, Dr. Lori A. Barker '86 leads a team of expert multicultural theorists and researchers studying racism, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, and immigration to answer these questions and analyze the enormous impact of this groundbreaking event in our nation's history.

    About the author: Dr. Lori A. Barker '86 is a professor in the Psychology and Sociology Department at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona). She received her BA in psychology from Yale University and her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from UCLA. After receiving her degree, Dr. Barker spent one additional year at UCLA as a National Institute of Mental Health postdoctoral research fellow. Dr. Barker is a licensed clinical psychologist has a small private practice in Riverside, California.

    Museum Trail - Bruce - Women artists

    Join us for the 8th stop on our Museum Trail – we are circling back to the Bruce Museum of Arts and Science in Greenwich.  Susan Ball '78 PhD, Deputy Director, will lead us on tour of their new exhibit “Her Crowd: New Art by Women from Our Neighbors’ Private Collections”.

    Only yesterday, it seems, one was hard-pressed to name more than a handful of successful women artists; now the list would be extensive, and the choices rich and varied. Although numerous recent exhibitions have featured women’s art, scant attention has been paid to the collecting of art created by women. In fact, private collections are in the process of being dramatically transformed. Greenwich and nearby communities in Fairfield and Westchester counties are home to a number of the finest contemporary collections, and thus to some of the most exciting art being made today.

    Her Crowd will offer the rare opportunity to see what some of America’s most influential collectors of contemporary art consider beautiful, important, and compelling.  Follow this link for additional information: https://brucemuseum.org/site/exhibitions_detail/her-crowd-new-art-by-women-from-our-neighbors-private-collections

    The Broad Museum in Los Angeles, CA

    YaleWomenLA curated tour of Cindy Sherman at the Broad

    Please join YaleWomenLA on Thursday, September 29 at 6 PM for a fabulous private tour of the Cindy Sherman exhibition, Imitation of Life with the curator of the show at The Broad Museum in downtown Los Angeles. Tickets are $35 and reflect the actual cost of the event. Please note that we will be unable to process any refunds. Tickets can be purchased on the Eventbrite link below.

    The Broad’s first special exhibition is a comprehensive survey of the work of artist Cindy Sherman. Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life is the first major museum show of Sherman’s work in Los Angeles in nearly 20 years, and the exhibition fills The Broad’s first-floor galleries with 120 works drawn primarily from the Broad collection with key loans from other institutions.

    Organized by guest curator Philipp Kaiser, and taking cues from Los Angeles’ role as the mecca of the film industry, this exhibition foregrounds Cindy Sherman's engagement with 20th century popular film and celebrity. The exhibition features an expansive representation of Sherman’s photographs from throughout her influential career of more than four decades, as well as Office Killer, the 1997 feature film directed by the artist. Her widely known Untitled Film Stills series, as well as the less known rear projection series, both inspired by cinema of the 1950s and 1960s, play a central conceptual role in the show, and the show includes many works never before exhibited in Los Angeles.

    NorCal Book Night: Euphoria

    Desire – for knowledge, fame or another person – is only fleetingly felt, in a moment of Euphoria. In this tale of euphoria, three young anthropologists meet in 1930's New Guinea and settle in to jointly study the Tam, a female-dominated tribe. Their work draws them together, but their diverse research methods bring them into conflict, as does the love triangle that develops. King uses events in the life of Margaret Mead to inspire this intellectual and erotic tale of the moral contradictions that propelled encounters with remote peoples in the heyday of Western anthropology.

    We have two confirmed gathering locations in San Francisco and Los Gatos. Please RSVP at https://ywbooknight-euphoria.eventbrite.com

    • Stay poised, not reactive, even in the face of frustrating or intimidating people
    • Prevent your confidence from being worn down by workplace interactions
    • Shift from being self-critical to being a critical thinker so you have excellence without exhaustion

    YaleWomen-CT Work/Life Balance #2

    Redeux!   Continuing a conversation YaleWomen Connecticut began in November

    Curiosity & Conversations: Finding Work/Life Balance

    What is work/life balance?  Can we -- how do we – achieve it?

    Are you struggling to find balance between your professional and personal lives?  Do you feel that your professional and personal lives pull you in different directions?  Would you like to talk with other Yale women about how they are figuring out “how to have it all”? 

    Join Yale women alums from Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and from all walks of life in a conversation about the topic that is making headlines everywhere: what is work/life balance and how do we achieve it?

    To whet your appetite for what promises to be another rich and thought provoking conversation, we offer the following “food for thought” –

    Questions to think about: 

    • What is your definition of balance?  
    • Has your definition of balance changed over the course of your career?  If so, how has it changed and how did you address how you found balance over time, one way or the other?  
    • How does finding balance “jive” with staying competitive in your line of work?   
    • Can women have it all – find balance and stay at the top?  If so – how?  
    • Advice for younger women?  What do we tell the next generation of women who are facing these same issues?  
    • What are your core values behind the topic of work/life balance?  

    Recommended viewings and readings:

    We’ve posted a number of relevant pieces on the YaleWomen Connecticut Facebook page – we highly recommend the following for April’s conversation –

    Previously recommended for the November 2015 conversation –

    What to bring?

    Your curiosity and your conversation!  And a snack to share: if your last name begins with A-L, please bring a “savory”; if your last name begins with M-Z, please bring a “sweet.”  Coffee and tea will be provided.

    We look forward to seeing you!

    The Women's Campaign School at Yale University is a non-partisan, issue-neutral leadership program, whose mission is to increase the number and influence of women in elected and appointed office in the United States and around the globe. This year the Women's Campaign School at Yale University celebrates over twenty years of inspiring and training women to lead.

    The number of women in Congress and the House of Representatives has dramatically increased over the last 20 years, yet the United States still ranks 82nd worldwide in the percentage of women in our national legislature.

    “Let’s take our Congress, for example. Presently, of the 100 seats which comprise the US Senate, only 17 women serve. In the House of Representatives, of the 435 seats there, only 71 women serve. We can do better. We owe it to our society to do better. It is our clarion call at the Women’s Campaign School at Yale.” Patti Russo Interview Forbes, April 2011

    Sudler Hall -- 100 Wall Street

     

    The Poynter Fellowship in Journalism plays a unique role in the educational life of Yale University. Nelson Poynter (Yale, M.A. 1927) established the program to enable Yale to bring to its campus distinguished reporters, editors and others who have made important contributions to the media.

     

    Mara Liasson is the national political correspondent for NPR. Her reports can be heard regularly on NPR's award-winning newsmagazines All Things Considered and Morning Edition. Liasson provides extensive coverage of politics and policy from Washington, DC — focusing on the White House and Congress — and also reports on political trends beyond the Beltway. 

     

    Each election year, Liasson provides key coverage of the candidates and issues in both presidential and congressional races. During her tenure she has covered six presidential elections — in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012. Prior to her current assignment, Liasson was NPR's White House correspondent for all eight years of the Clinton administration. She has won the White House Correspondents Association's Merriman Smith Award for daily news coverage in 1994, 1995, and again in 1997. From 1989-1992 Liasson was NPR's congressional correspondent.

     

    Liasson joined NPR in 1985 as a general assignment reporter and newscaster. From September 1988 to June 1989 she took a leave of absence from NPR to attend Columbia University in New York as a recipient of a Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism.

     

    Prior to joining NPR, Liasson was a freelance radio and television reporter in San Francisco. She was also managing editor and anchor of California Edition, a California Public Radio nightly news program, and a print journalist for The Vineyard Gazette in Martha's Vineyard, Mass.

     

    Liasson is a graduate of Brown University where she earned a bachelor's degree in American history.

    Yale Women Faculty Forum -- Unveiling a Portrait of Yale’s First Women PhDs: Commemorating Graduate Coeducation

    The Yale Women Faculty Forum invites the Yale community to join us to view a new portrait of Yale’s first women PhDs, awarded in 1894. Celebrate this historic event for graduate coeducation. Yale’s decision to accept women would forever change academia and the course of women’s advancement. The first cohort of women graduates made an indelible mark on American culture as professors, writers, scientists, and activists. The Brooklyn based artist Brenda Zlamany has painted an inspiring portrait of these pioneers.

    To learn more about the history of graduate coeducation and about the artist’s process of painting the portrait, join us in the Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall on April 5th from 3:30-4:30. Talks will be given by artist Brenda Zlamany and Yale Chief Archivist Judith Schiff. 

    At 4:45 we will gather for remarks by President Salovey and faculty followed by a reception in the Sterling Memorial Library Nave.

    YaleWomen and Yale Office of Career Strategy

    YaleWomen and Yale Office of Career Strategy

    Job Shadow/Yale Treks Program

    During Spring Break – March 14-25, 2016

     

    A wonderful opportunity for Yale women – who represent a wide range of career paths – to help Yale students both in Yale College and the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences experience different types of workplace settings.  Respond directly to Denise Byrnes, Associate Director, Office of Career Strategy at denise.byrnes@yale.edu

     

    Why participate in a Job Shadow or Yale Trek program?

    These experiences will enable Yale students to:

    • Explore a career field of interest

      •     Gain "first-hand" knowledge of a real work environment and on-the-job etiquette

    • Connect directly with an alum/employer host, who can serve as an excellent resource for career, job and internship advice

    • Students can uncover possible internships and options for future careers

       

    What are the benefits for my organization?

    • Connect directly with Yale undergraduate students, and students from the Yale Graduate School of Arts & Sciences

    • Gain access to potential summer interns and future employees

    • Increase your brand on campus

       

      What is Job Shadowing?

    Students shadow a host for one or more days.  This provides students with a "day-in-the-life" perspective of your profession and allows them to gain first-hand knowledge about a career field.   

     

    What types of activities do Yale Treks involve?

    Hosts may choose to arrange a variety of activities for students at their site to allow them to gain exposure to many facets of their organization and profession. Potential activities include:

    • Informational discussions/panels

    • Presentations

    • Informational interviews with colleagues

    • Case studies

    • Participation in meetings

    • Tours of the organization

    • Work-related projects which would give students a feel for the type of assignments entry-level employees or interns might participate in. Examples include research, data analysis, and editing.  

       

      What type of work experience do students bring?

      These programs are designed for career exploration and are open to all undergraduates, as well as students from Yale Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.  The primary intent of this experience is for students to learn more about their career interests. Students are not required or expected to have prior work experience or specific job skills to participate. 

       

      When do these programs take place?

      You can host students during their Spring Break, March 14-25, 2016.

       

      Can I host more than one student at my site?

      Yes, this is left to the discretion of the hosts.

       

      Can I combine Job Shadowing with a Yale Trek?

      Yes, this is left to the discretion of the hosts.

       

      Am I responsible for the student’s housing, transportation or other expenses? 

      No, the student’s expenses are paid in full by the student. 

       

      How does the application and selection process work? 

    • Submit a Job Shadow and/or Yale Trek description to Denise Byrnes, Associate Director, Office of Career Strategy at denise.byrnes@yale.edu.  Please include a brief description of your organization and the date/timing that works best for you to host students.

    • Students will apply in mid-February. 

    • Selections are made by hosts in late February. 

    • Students will be asked to accept your offer by the end of February. 

    • Hosts sends logistics for the day(s) directly to students in early March (at least one week prior to the date the Job Shadowing or Trek begins).

    Regardless of your age or where you grew up, you’ll want to join us for a fun and thought provoking event about a time before suburban shopping malls and internet shopping, when Main Street USA was the place to shop and lunch – and about a woman in business, Beatrice Fox Auerbach, who was years ahead of her time!

    In the 1950s, just about every major city had a landmark department store.  In Hartford, it was G. Fox & Company.  “Mention shopping to anyone who lived in the Hartford area during the 50s and 60s and they’ll tell you about taking the bus downtown, often in hat and gloves if you’re talking to a woman, on Saturdays, to spend the day browsing the shops and lunching in the restaurants that lined Main, Pearl, Pratt and Asylum Streets.  But first and foremost, they’ll tell you about G. Fox – the iconic department store that anchored Hartford’s Main Street retail district from its founding in 1847 to its closing in 1993. Labeled ‘Connecticut’s Department Store’ it was known across the state for its Art Deco styling, merchandise, holiday displays, community events in Centinel Hill Hall, Connecticut Room restaurant and most of all, its legendary customer service.”  (The Hartford Courant, February 25, 2014) 

    Beatrice Auerbach Fox, the woman who ran G. Fox from 1938 to 1965, not only set the standard for legendary customer service and innovative sales practices, she also established pioneering labor reforms.  Some of Auerbach’s forward-looking innovations included free delivery service, a toll-free telephone order department, and fully automated billing.  Auerbach was committed to her employees and she instituted fair labor standards that resulted in workplace reforms, including a five-day, 40-hour work week, and retirement plans.  G. Fox was one of the first major retail stores in the country to hire black men and women for positions that gave them opportunities for advancement.  These advancements helped G. Fox to become one of New England’s largest and most successful department stores and the largest privately-held store in the country.  Auerbach was also a renowned philanthropist, who contributed significantly to many of Hartford's cultural, educational and civic organizations.  (Source: Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame website http://cwhf.org/inductees/business-labor/beatrice-fox-auerbach/#.VpfRKfkrJdg)

    Please join YWLA as we welcome author Suzanne Mustacich '86, Contributing Editor at Wine Spectator magazine. Suzanne will discuss her book, Thirsty Dragon, which was just named by Amazon as a best book of the month in the Business/Leadership category.  Please bring an hors d'oeuvre to share with the group; Suzanne has generously offered to provide the wine!

    Here is just one of the rave reviews for the book.

    Fareed Zakaria: "Thirsty Dragon is a fascinating look inside China through an unusual, and illuminating prism - wine. I found myself learning more about China from this ground-up approach than from many books that look at the big picture. Worth reading, especially with a nice glass of wine at your side."

    More information on the book can be found here:

Alissa’s earlier book, Squeezed: What You Don’t Know About Orange Juice (2010) uncovered similar untruths about orange juice, and the industrial complex behind the surge in demand for “fresh” juice.  Q & A and group discussion to follow Alissa’s presentation.

    Curiosity & Conversations: Finding Work/Life Balance

    YaleWomen Connecticut

    Finding Balance: What is work/life balance?  Can we -- how do we – achieve it?

    Are you struggling to find balance between your professional and personal lives?  Do you feel that your professional and personal lives pull you in different directions?  Would you like to talk with other Yale women about how they are figuring out “how to have it all”? 

    Join Yale women alums from Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and from all walks of life in a conversation about the topic that is making headlines everywhere: what is work/life balance and how do we achieve it?

    To whet your appetite for what promises to be a rich and thought provoking conversation, we offer the following “food for thought” –

    Questions to think about: 

    • What is your definition of balance?  
    • Has your definition of balance changed over the course of your career?  If so, how has it changed and how did you address how you found balance over time, one way or the other?

    We invite all Yale alumni (men and women) and their guests to join us for an evening of open and candid dialogue at our Fall Leadership event featuring:

    • Robin J. Ely, Diane Doerge Wilson Professor of Business Administration and Senior Associate Dean for Culture and Community at Harvard Business School

Kristine Langdon, Yale '81 (PC), of Korn/Ferry, and Jim Wall of Deloitte will discuss their experiences creating more supportive environments for promoting women to senior leadership positions within consulting, life sciences and technology organizations.

    This Sunday's (9/20) NY Times Sunday Review section includes commentary by New America Foundation President & CEO Anne-Marie Slaughter on "A Toxic Work World," which cites Professor Ely's research and issues of gender stereotyping for both men and women.

    YaleWomen Connecticut - Museum Trail - Seven Deadly Sins

    The summer is almost over and it’s time to make our next visit on the YaleWomen Connecticut Museum Trail!  The Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance is in the midst of a collaborative exhibition representing The Seven Deadly Sins.  This write up from the Bruce Museum explains:

    “Each of the FWMA institutions explores one of the seven deadly sins - a hardcore group of despised actions that for centuries defined what humans must not do to live good lives. The litany of sins is as familiar to us now as to past generations - Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Pride, Sloth, and Wrath – and each sin is often contrasted with a contrary virtue: Kindness, Temperance, Charity, Chastity, Humility, and Diligence, whose practice protects us from the ever present temptation to sin. The "Deadly Seven," the favorite subject of painters and poets over centuries, is woven into the warp and weft of the Western world's cultural allusions. Sin, committed by individuals and by communities, looms large in contemporary life just as It did In ancient times.”

    We will be visiting the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield as they explore Sloth.  By virtue of their approach to laziness, we will get to armchair travel and see all of the exhibits from the comfort of a lounge chair.  What could be more slothful!  September 19th is “Sinful Saturday,” the closing day of the exhibition that features a number of events, including an exhibition tour at 1:00.  As well, at 2:00 Mats Bigert, the exhibition’s co-curator will be here and will be screening excerpts from his not yet finished film “Do Nothing,” that charts the recent history of laziness.

    Here are 2 great reviews:

This year, we have expanded to include host yards from across the Chicago area – in the Chicago Loop, Logan Square, Pilsen, River Forest, Riverside and Oak Park, to Dallas, TX.; Los Angeles, CA. and Denmark. Terrain Exhibitions has received attention in the international press for exhibitions that include: Art in America, Hyperallergic, Bad at Sports, Artslant as well as local publications such as The Oak Park Leaves in Oak Park, IL  www.terrainexhibitions.tumblr.com

    YaleWomen Connecticut – Museum Trail: Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, 1861–2008

    What:

    Join us for our 6th stop on the YaleWomen Connecticut Museum Trail:  Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, 1861–2008

    Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland is the first major exhibition to use visual art as a lens to explore the lure that Coney Island exerted on American culture over a period of 150 years. An extraordinary array of artists viewed Coney Island as a microcosm of the American experience, from its beginnings as a watering hole for the wealthy, through its transformation into an entertainment mecca for the masses, to the closing of Astroland Amusement Park following decades of urban decline.

    Robin Jaffee Frank '81 MA, '91 MPhil, '95 PhD, the Atheneum’s Chief Curator and the Curator of this Exhibition, will lead us on a private tour.  “Ms. Frank, a Brooklyn native who visited Coney Island often as a child, vividly recalls being terrified by sights like the Cyclops head that hung at the Spook-A-Rama, a 1950s thrill ride that took passengers under a blood-red waterfall and past horror figures.  She grew increasingly fascinated by art about the landmark over her more than two decades at the Yale University Art Gallery, where she became senior associate curator of American paintings and sculpture in 2006. She brought her research for the show with her when the Wadsworth Atheneum hired her as chief curator in 2011. The Yale University Art Gallery is the exhibit’s biggest lender.  (WSJ, 1/16/15)

    Prior to the tour, there will be an optional pay-as-you-go live jazz brunch with Goza Latin Jazz at 11:00 am at the Atheneum’s Museum Café.  The buffet includes a complimentary Blood Mary or Mimosa, chef's specialty egg entrée, thick cut bacon and home fries, seasonal French toast, sliced roast turkey breast, seasonal fruit, tossed salad, roasted vegetables, and assorted breakfast sweet breads and muffins.

To what extent are you willing to trade your privacy for improved online advertising and services?  What role, if any, should government play in managing the exchange, security, and use of digital personal data?

    YaleWomen Connecticut -- Curiosity & Conversations: Female Beauty

    Curiosity & Conversations: Female Beauty

    beau·ty (byo͞otē)  noun  a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.

     

    Ten years ago, in an effort to change the conversation about female beauty, Dove launched its “Real Beauty Campaign.” 

    Did the conversation change?

    Join us for a conversation in which we will explore beauty: What is your definition of beauty?  How does our culture define beauty?  How does how big industry – perhaps including Unilever through its Dove “Real Beauty” campaign – shape and influence both our culture’s and our individual perceptions of beauty?  How do we feel about beauty?  Whether or not Dove’s “Real Beauty” campaign changed the conversation about female beauty, where can YaleWomen Connecticut take this conversation?

    Learning Center’s Eat 2 Live community garden (http://everythinggoode2l.org/) .
    This garden is the first phase in the creation of a farm business incubator at the site and is a
    partnership between the Englewood community, Angelic Organics Learning Center

    Yale Day of Service Event

    YaleWomen LA Day of Service Event

    "Service to others is one of the joys and responsibilities that comes with a Yale education." --Yale President Peter Salovey

     Yale Day of Service is this Saturday, May 10, 2014! This year there are more than a dozen sites around LA and Orange County ready for you to volunteer. We of YaleWomen Los Angeles can help make the Yale Day of Service the biggest one worldwide.

    From the list of volunteer sites below, we'd like to draw special attention to the event YaleWomen LA is co-sponsoring with the Yale Black Alumni Association and the Yale Club of LA, Empowerment and Success! Workshops: Girls Empowered 2 & Game Changers
     
    This kickoff event targets girls and boys from foster care, group homes, inner city schools and urban churches and seeks to empower them using workshops on financial literacy, self esteem/confidence, and healthy relationships. Boys and girls groups will be separated to allow for open and safe discussion of the issues.  
     
    You may find follow-up opportunities to volunteer at subsequent workshops that will occur every 3 months through May 2015 and will focus on selecting colleges, choosing careers, creating a personal brand, and more. You may also find other volunteer opportunities from this event like holding informational interviews with the participating kids if you're in a career they're curious about. Then, at the 2015 Day of Service event, the participants will report back on what they have accomplished and learned over the year! 
     
    Register to volunteer at the May 10 Success! Workshop via the Yale Club Yale Day of Service site, or if it is not accepting registrations, please email  scnegash@verizon.net.  This site is spearheaded by YWLA member Sheryl Carter Negash, and will feature YWLA board member Robinne Lee and facilitation by fellow YWLA board member Monica Nordhaus.
     
    If you can't give of your time, you can donate funds or goods (they currently need food and pens!) using the Solicitation Letter attached, or email  scnegash@verizon.net.
     
    There's more! Click on any link below to learn more about volunteering at the many sites around LA on May 10!
    For inspiration, check out these videos about the 2014 Yale Day of Service via the Association of Yale Alumni from two of the Yale Day of Service Honorary Chairs, George W. Bush '68 and Bill Clinton '73 JD

    Hope to see you on Saturday, May 10,

    Additional Food for Thought:
     
    “During the early years of the 20th century, the Lyme Art Colony, centered in Miss Florence Griswold's boardinghouse, became America's most famous summer art colony. Today this museum of art and history tells the story of how Connecticut played a pivotal role in fostering an authentic American art.” (Jeffrey Andersen, Museum Director)
     
    To learn more about the rich history of the Florence Griswold Museum, go to http://www.florencegriswoldmuseum.org/
     
    See also “The Birth of Art Colonies: Old Lyme and Greenwich Were Key Locations for American Impressionism – Colonies Modeled after French Enclaves of Artists Seeking Rural Inspiration
     
    And “Study Finds a Gender Gap at the Top Museums” but not in Washington/Baltimore area:  “The Directors. Women are leading 13 of the cultural institutions in the Washington/Baltimore area.  For them, museums are no longer built with glass ceilings.”

    Richard Florida, an American urban studies theorist and author of The Rise of the Creative Class, believes that a community’s aesthetic assets are among its most priceless resources and that they are the elements that “make a city sing.”  Connecticut is rich in aesthetic assets, in every nook and cranny of the state!

    The volunteer experience will include a brief orientation to PAWS Chicago followed by cleaning duties (folding laundry, cleaning windows or doing dishes) or miscellaneous projects (assembling adoption folders or information packets, putting together cones needed for spay/neuter surgeries, etc.). After your hard work, you will get the opportunity to socialize with a few of the homeless dogs and cats!
     
    Because volunteers will have animal contact, rubber-soled closed-toe shoes and long pants/sleeves are a must. Volunteers should avoid wearing dangling jewelry, as well as perfume/cologne since some pets react negatively to new odors. Volunteers must be 18 years of age and are required to sign a waiver of liability.

    To read the study, you can click this link: http://www.pnas.org/content/109/41/16474.  Selecting the “Full Text” option will show you the full five-page study.  If you have insufficient time for the entire study, you can read “Bias Persists for Women of Science”, the two-page New York Times article describing it.  Here’s the link:http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/25/science/bias-persists-against-women-of-science-a-study-says.html?_r=0

     

    We encourage you to invite your Yale women friends.  Although we have many alumnae addresses, we do not have them all.  Please spread the word by forwarding this e-mail to the Yalies you know. 

     

    Whether or not you attend the dinner, you can e-mail Lisa Goldman ’74 at LisaAG@aya.yale.edu and ask to join the Greater Boston Yale women’s network e-mail list.  If you do not already receive e-mails from her, you are not currently on the list.  You can also e-mail Lisa with questions about event logistics.

    • If you would like to learn about our mentoring program, please contact Maria Kontaridis mkontari@bidmc.harvard.edu and/or Lisa Goldman at LisaAG@aya.yale.edu.

     

    We allow late registrations and walk-ins in an attempt to accommodate everyone.  However, the restaurant needs a final head count one week in advance.  Please e-mail Lisa Goldman if you plan to preregister after Wednesday, January 29th.  We need the most accurate possible head count to ensure sufficient food for everyone.

    From Cambridge:  Take the red line to Park Street station and then take the green line as described above.

     

    Parking:  The Algonquin Club offers valet parking at $22 per car. You pay at the event.  To use it, simply stop your car in front of the club and say you want to valet park.  They can only valet park 20 cars.

     

    You also can park in any metered space.  Please note that meters may go until 8:00 p.m. and ticketing happens frequently.  At some spaces in the Back Bay, you must pay at multi-space meters.  Please look for them rather than assuming that spaces do not have meters.

     

    Should on-street parking prove scarce, the Prudential parking garage entrance sits on Exeter Street between Boylston Street and Huntington Avenue.  It costs $12.00 with validation from the Prudential Center if you enter after 5:00 p.m.

    You can also park in the Copley Place garage.  As you drive east on Huntington Avenue towards the Boston Garden, the Copley Place entrance is on your right near Exeter Street.  After 5:30 p.m., parking costs $12 with validation from Copley Place

    Deborah Kass employs the visual motifs of post-war painting to explore the intersection of politics, popular culture, art history and personal identity.  Her celebrated series, The Warhol Project, from the early 1990’s refocused Andy Warhol’s eye for celebrity portraiture. Her work incorporates lyrics from Broadway musicals, movie quotations and Yiddish sayings into canonical formats like Frank Stella’s concentric squares, Ellsworth Kelly’s rainbow spectrum and Andy Warhol’s camouflage patterns.

     

    Kass’s work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Jewish Museum and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The National Portrait Gallery, among others.  She is a Senior Critic in the Graduate Painting Program at Yale University.   Recent solo and group exhibitions include The Pittsburgh Biennial at The Andy Warhol Museum; “The Deconstructive Impulse” at the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, NY; “feel good paintings for feel bad times” and “MORE feel good paintings for feel bad times” at Paul Kasmin Gallery; and “Shifting the Gaze: Painting and Feminism” at The Jewish Museum in New York, NY.  In 2012, The Andy Warhol Museum hosted  “Deborah Kass: Before and Happily Ever After, a Mid-Career Retrospective.” Kass’s work was also featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years.”

     

     

    Eric Shiner is the Director of The Andy Warhol Museum, the most comprehensive single-artist museum in the world, located in Pittsburgh, PA.   At The Warhol Museum, Shiner organized Factory Direct: Pittsburgh, an exhibition that showcased the artwork of 14 established contemporary artists invited to conduct artist residencies in Pittsburgh-based factories.  In addition, Shiner led The Warhol team in creating Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal, the largest traveling exhibition of Warhol artwork in Asia, as well as the first retrospective of appropriation artist Deborah Kass, titledBefore and Happily Ever After.   In 2013, Shiner curated Armory Focus: USA at The Armory Show, which presented a broad snapshot of the country’s contemporary cultural practice.  Further, Shiner is a scholar of contemporary Japanese art and a leading authority on Andy Warhol.  His hometown is New Castle, PA.  He received a Bachelor of Philosophy in The History of Art & Architecture and Japanese Language & Literature from The University of Pittsburgh Honors College in 1994, an M.A. in The History of Art from Osaka University in 2001, and an M.A. in The History of Art from Yale in 2003.
