Women of EA

On Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, Episcopal hosted its second Women of EA event in the Crawford Campus Center from 6-9 p.m. Read about the program here.

The goal of our Women of EA events is to provide professional development and personal growth opportunities for women and men, while celebrating the important work of notable female leaders affiliated with the EA community. Open to all, this event serves as a forum for alumni, students, parents, parents of alumni, and friends to empower one another.

New to the event this year, and based on feedback from 2018, breakout panels followed the keynote speakers. These panels offered an opportunity for our audience to ask career-specific questions and have a conversation relevant to differing career trajectories. Panelists shared their work and facilitated a conversation around the keynote conversation.

We hope to see you at our next event!
