It's not too late to join #VCNY tomorrow for our 7th Annual (but 1st Virtual!) Career Mentoring Day. @vassarcollege’s greatest resource is its loyal, accomplished alumnae/i. During this event, senior-level #Vassar graduates in four broadly defined industry sectors—media & entertainment, business, arts & culture, and law—will virtually meet with fellow graduates to engage in informal intimate conversations. These conversations can be used for career trajectory advice or general networking. Attendees will have the opportunity to virtually meet with multiple professionals in each industry.

In recent years, the U.S. Supreme Court has been at the center of some of the nation’s most divisive issues. On topics ranging from healthcare, to immigration, to civil liberties, the Court has negotiated a historically tumultuous political environment. It has done so amidst the loss of three historic figures: the deaths of Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. Recent appointments have generated extreme controversy, leading some policymakers and academics to call for major structural reforms such as the elimination of lifetime tenure. What can Americans expect from the Court in the years ahead? Are proposals for reform likely to come to pass? And how might the new President attempt to reshape the courts more generally? This evening we'll hear from a panel of alumnae/i legal experts on these important topics. Learn more about this #VCNY program at alums.vassar.edu/events.
Has lockdown brought out the latent mixologist in you, inspiring you to want to up your cocktail-making game?

She'll also set you up with a blueprint for keeping a well-stocked bar, from booze to mixers to tools. Recipes will be provided prior to the event for those who register.

Join #VCNY for our next Virtual Salon on February 18th featuring Debora Spar P’19, whose current research focuses on issues of gender and technology, and the interplay between technological change and broader social structures. Spar tackles some of these issues in her recent book "Work Mate Marry Love: How Machines Shape Our Human Destiny." What will happen to our notions of marriage and parenthood as reproductive technologies increasingly allow for newfangled ways of creating babies? What will happen to our understanding of gender as medical advances enable individuals to transition from one set of sexual characteristics to another, or to remain happily perched in between? What will happen to love and sex and romance as our relationships migrate from the real world to the Internet? Can people fall in love with robots? Will they? In short, what will happen to our most basic notions of humanity as we entangle our lives and emotions with the machines we have created? Register now to find out: alums.vassar.edu/events! #Vassar
