A lively group of Bryn Mawr alumnae and students gathered in Boston on January 3rd for Network Boston, the annual networking event for Bryn Mawr and Haverford graduates and students. The event was sponsored by the Career Development Office at Bryn Mawr and Haverford, the Career Development Representative of the Bryn Mawr Club of Boston, and the Haverford Career Development Representatives. A total of 40 BMC and HC alumni and students attended, including Mawrters Trina Arpin ’92, Emily Bell ’98, Carol Burns ’77, Leigh Carmody ’97, Anna Doherty ’97, Anna Dunbar-Hester ’03, Sharon Gershman ’00, Madaline Keros ’97, Phyliss King ’57, Abbey Mann ’07, Anh Nguyen ’99, Elisabeth Robart ’93, Praggya Rustagi ’01, Ursala Spont ’03, Amelia Taylor ’06, Bejay Ugale ’00, Angela Valenti ’99, Liz Vizza ’74, and current students Dena Feldman ’08, Ludovica Ferme ’10, Bethany Giblin ’10, Julia Keith ’08.

Despite the frigid weather outdoors, there was much warmth indoors as we lounged on beautiful contemporary furniture at Ligne Roset at Adesso, thanks to the generosity of Rick Grossman, Haverford ’66, the furniture store’s owner. A wide range of Mawrters attended; career fields represented included higher education, public policy, social services, finance, and investment management. Job and internship openings were announced, and many business cards were exchanged.

If you were not able to attend this time, plan to come next year. It’s a great way to meet fellow alumnae and current students, have conversations about all kinds of different work issues, and warm up in the middle of winter!
