The Victoria Dabrowski Schmidt ’42 Workplace and Professional Development Symposium was established in 2016 through the AADC to provide professional development opportunities for Douglass alumnae and to facilitate meaningful professional networking among Douglass alumnae and friends. This annual symposium is free for all alumnae and AADC Contributing Friends. It provides relevant information on issues facing women in the workplace and on professional development and women’s issues. We are grateful to Victoria Dabrowski Schmidt ’42 for her generosity in establishing an endowment to provide and grow this highly-successful symposium.

Major funding for Victoria Dabrowski Schmidt ’42 Workplace & Professional Development Symposium was provided by Victoria Dabrowski Schmidt ’42. We thank Victoria for her generosity and support. Per the Agreement, the Annual Appeal is not on behalf of NJC, DRC, Douglass, or Rutgers. To join in supporting our mission, visit douglassalumnae.org/makeagift.
