Women’s Leadership Series

Women’s Leadership Book Club Series

Join us for our quarterly Women’s Leadership Book Club! Each quarter, we read and discuss a book that addresses issues pertaining to women’s leadership. The program is open to ALL members of the UChicago community, regardless of gender identity.

The fall quarter selection is Lead from the Outside: How to Build Your Future and Make Real Change by Stacey Abrams. To get your copy of the book, we ask that you pick up the book from our offices in Reynolds Club 016 and provide a $10 deposit (cash or check) that we then return at the meeting.

The meeting will be held in Bartlett Lounge on October 24 from 12:30-1:30pm. Please RSVP by email to Karina Pabón, kpabon@uchicago.edu. 


For questions about the series or suggestions for selections / workshops you'd like to see, email Karina at kpabon@uchicago.edu.
