**** 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 Houston Second Annual Cookie Exchange and South Pole Expedition Presentation

Maybe Santa lives on the South Pole? Let’s investigate the possibility with a presentation from Nisha Desai (YC ‘92)on her trek to the South Pole in December 2016. You’ll see photos from her trip and learn what it takes to prepare for an Antarctic expedition.

We’ll also be running our Second Annual Holiday Cookie Exchange. This event is for you if you like variety but don’t want to do it all yourself. Bring a plate of cookies (doesn't really matter how many) and some empty containers. Fill them up with an assortment of your choice so that you will have a mix of whatever looks interesting to you.

Have some eggnog, quiche and salad while you trade sweets

If you're not a baker, fear not! You can bring anything you like or even nothing at all as there will be plenty to share. If we do this right there are no leftovers.

Address will be shared to those who RSVP that they will attend.
