Women's Weekend set for February

November 19, 2013

Whether you’re navigating the early stages of your professional career, experiencing a major life transition, or pursuing deeper engagement with issues that matter to you, the Duke Alumni Association’s 2014 Women’s Weekend promises insights, inspiration, and expert advice.

“Find Your Moxie: Duke Women Creating Change” will take place February 20-22 on campus. The biennial Women’s Weekend provides informal networking opportunities with current Duke students, senior administrators, faculty members, and fellow alumnae, as well as panel discussions and presentations by special guest speakers.

“Find Your Moxie” will include three tracks: Breaking the Rules, Leading the Way, and Building Community. Participants can choose from the concurrent tracks, which will be offered several times during the weekend. Sessions will explore a wide range of topics, including the growing power and influence of women’s philanthropy, effecting change both from within and from outside existing organizations, and connecting the personal and political.

At press time, confirmed speakers include:

Lesley Jane Seymour ’78, editor-in-chief of More magazine, and former editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, Redbook, and YM. She is also the chair of the Duke Magazine Editorial Advisory Board.
