The SIUE Women’s Studies Program is proud to sponsor
coffee with cool women
conversations with women of imagination and accomplishment
This program originated in a series of conversations with successful women about their career paths. As one might expect, many cited long-term relationships with mentors in their field as crucial to their choices, but, more surprisingly, they also spoke about much briefer encounters with women who made them think, “Wow. I want to do that. I can do that.” Coffee With Cool Women, then, is a series of one-hour conversations in which “cool women”—women who have chosen interesting, challenging, and sometimes unconventional careers—meet with a small group of SIUE students to talk about the pleasures, frustrations, and surprises of their professional lives thus far. The setting is casual, the conversation is candid, and the coffee is fresh.
All CWCW sessions are held in the Women’s Studies Office (Peck 3407) and seating is limited. To reserve your space, contact Prof. Catherine Seltzer, firstname.lastname@example.org or at 618-650-2256.
