RU Council member Joan Steinberg and

S
Graduate
Fellow Lindsay Bellani.
As described by one fellow, “I gained unique insight
from the impressive and generous donors who had
made their mark in other fields and throughout the local
community. I feel the camaraderie fostered at these
events is particularly important, especially for young
women working in fields where men have traditionally
taken leading roles, or where women may, at times,
be outnumbered.”
