Vanessa Wilson leads a Financial Fluency Leadership Lab

Packed with activities, reunion 2010 offered panels on gender-specific medicine, and printed books vs. e-readers; Athena Center workshops on developing negotiating skills, presenting powerful arguments, calming your inner critic, and a lecture on managing finances; and Career development workshops on career management and enhancement, among many other choices. Apart from get-togethers with classmates, there were abundant opportunities for personal growth and learning. Morning yoga classes prepared alumnae for busy schedules; evenings offered receptions and a chance to unwind at class dinners on Friday and at the all-classes gala awards dinner on Saturday. Just some highlights of the events-packed weekend that makes reunion such a great experience. Join us next year!
