YaleWomen Presents: Virtual Event Series 2021

This has been such a year of change and we are reshaping our perspective on how we connect. From Feb to May, we are pleased to announce a curated series of limited digital experiences where you can actively participate with speakers and other Yale women who are excited to connect, and finish an event feeling accomplished. You could have action steps to help you build a new healthy habit, address a career path question, or just be inspired by a new friend or place.

From career workshops to the art and craft of storytelling and virtual travel, discover, learn, and network across diverse topics and immersive online experiences.
