On the Tenth Street campus a group of women had a potluck lunch together and everyone talked about Women Mentors who had inspired us:

My experience of this Women’s Day Dinner Party was insightful, delicious and inspiring.

Loved the setting – beautiful table, flowers, candles, food and meaningful, honest discussion.

Gathering together to share food and conversation is very supportive in building community.

Who are the women who inspire you?
