Happy New Year, Alumnae! We are excited to announce the first on-campus NDWC retreat this summer: mark your calendars for Sunday, June 2 and read on for details about our inaugural retreat. All are welcome!

In this issue, breast cancer survivor and activist Brigid Greening '91 shares the story of how her experience inspired her to educate and empower other women (don't miss the essential information she provides); humor writer Kathleen Toohill '12 gives us a glimpse inside her creative process; and Campus Conversations profiles two business professors who talk about identifying mentors, why there are no longer pre-existing “rules” for women in business, and much more.

Plus, learn how to participate in our eighth Shared Reading Experience, be inspired by the Greater Sarasota NDWC group to try something new this year (they do everything from blanket drives to rum tastings!), and catch up on the accomplishments of your fellow alumnae.

Keep in touch - if you know an alumna, student, professor, or group that we should profile, please let me know!

Go Irish!
