AADC Smart Talks

smart talks graphicLaunched in 2018 as part of the AADC’s Women’s Life-long Learning Initiative, talks are presented by alumnae and friends sharing from their professional expertise. Co-chairs Karen McLane Torian ’73, Denise K. Busby ’76 and Amanda Hugelmeyer ’04, continue to network with alumnae to find interesting talks that bring this program to life. Well-received talks have been presented about genealogy, managing college debt, owning your worth as a woman and the A, B, Cs of Medicare. You can take the opportunity to learn and to ask questions during the Q&A that follows each talk. We are transitioning from our talks being livestreamed via Facebook Live to new virtual presentations you can participate in via Microsoft Teams online. To view previous talks, you may watch the presentations on video at your convenience on our Douglass Alumnae channel on Youtube.

Recent talks include our virtual AADC Smart Talk presentation, Healing Through the Arts on Saturday, presented by Linda Caldwell Epps ’73, AADC Board VP of Development and president and CEO of 1804 Consultants, who serves on the NJPAC Theater Square Development Company Board of Managers. Participants explored the creative process and how to express their voice.
