Join #VCNY this evening for our Fireside Chat with Jim Citrin '81! It's not too late to register: connect.vassar.edu! . As vaccines take hold and mask mandates are loosened in parts of the world, one key element of the past year and a half is indisputably here for the long run: remote and hybrid work arrangements across all industries and company sizes. As the global workforce moves into a steady state of remote and hybrid work arrangements, management teams need to consider how to be deliberate about supplementing the natural benefits of working together in-person while harnessing the undeniably positive aspects of remote life and cultivating the spaces where they converge. Join Alison Lindland ’00 for a fireside chat with Jim Citrin ’81, Spencer Stuart’s CEO Practice Leader and former Vassar Trustee and co-author of the new book Leading at a Distance: Practical Lessons for Virtual Success, where he’ll provide insights for the hybrid future on leading with authenticity and purpose, fostering a collaborative and equitable team, and managing effective virtual meetings. We will end the program with a moderated Q&A session with the audience. The program will be moderated by Dan Leslie ’01. The program will begin at 6:00pm EDT. Afterwards, a recording will be made available to registrants.
This evening, we're delighted to expand our #BookClub to include #Vassar Families, and to welcome alumnae/i authors Matt Bloom ’86, author of the "Hello, My Name is Bunny!" series, Victoria Bond ’01, author of the "Zora and Me" trilogy, and Jennifer Gennari ’86, author of "Muffled". The authors will discuss and share from their work for young readers!

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.

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.
