The Yale Club of Washington and Yale Women DC are proud to invite you to an evening with Yale's Something Extra a capella group!
Something Extra is a premier all-women a cappella group. Affectionately known as "SE" by both members and campus at-large, Something Extra was founded in 1977 and carries on 40 years worth of musical excellence. Today, SE's repertoire is exclusively self-arranged and comprised of a diverse mix of pop, jazz, indie, alternative rock, and classic oldie throwbacks - as can be heard on Something Extra's album to be released in spring 2018! The group tours throughout North America regularly, but has also made appearances in Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean, and most recently returned from London, Florence, and Rome. Known for its powerful soloists, tight harmonies, and statement red gloves, Something Extra is proud to maintain its dedication to exceptional music, constant innovation, and lasting sisterhood.
In addition to the concert, enjoy mingling, an hors d'œuvre menu, and non-alcoholic beverages.
Feel free to invite friends and family to support these Yale women!
Advance Purchase Tickets: $30 for general admission, $20 for Young Alums (classes 2006-2017); Deadline for online purchasing is Wednesday, March 14th.

Join us for our sixth Yale/Harvard Women's Salon. This month's topic is the "#metoo Movement." Inspired by the Enlightenment Salons of the 18th century, this series is an opportunity for curious and engaging women to connect with each other and share perspectives on timely and meaningful topics. Join us for great company, lively dialogue, wine and happy hour fare. In March we will once again be offering two salons, one in Arlington, VA (home of Ellen Fox) and one in Bethesda, MD (home of Debbie Banda). The two salons will be held simultaneously and will feature the same content and structure - just pick the most convenient location for you! Please read this article in advance: Time Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers. See the Eventbrite sites below for additional details and readings. There is a $7 ticket fee to cover the host's costs.
Please join YaleWomen Boston and Patricia Russo, Executive Director, the Women’s Campaign School at Yale, for a presentation and discussion on the many ways women can become effective leaders and changemakers.
By way of preview, click here to watch a recording of Patti in conversation with Kathryn Lofton, Yale Professor of Religious Studies, American Studies, History and Divinity, about "Women in Politics" - a live webinar discussion hosted by YaleWomen on October 19, 2016.
The Women's Campaign School at Yale is a non-partisan, issue neutral political campaign training program for women running for office, as well as for women interested in campaign management and appointed office. Its five day intensive program is held each June at Yale Law School.

Please join us for dinner on Tuesday, April 10th at 6pm at the Kitchen Bar in Providence? We can share good food, conversation, and ideas for supporting women in our communities during the Yale Day of Service in May (not on the 12th so we can all help out at Squashbusters with the Yale Association of RI).
If you think you can make it to dinner on April 10th or you have ideas for a Day of Service it is not too late, please email Tara by using this link.
