The Duke Women's Forum of DC is a network of Duke women in the DC area created to foster connections across the generations, to provide personal and professional development opportunities, and to offer opportunities to connect with Duke and its professors and alumni.
The goal of the DC Duke Women's Forum is to bring Duke alumnae together through programs, discussions and small gatherings that provide women's perspectives on various issues and current events that resonate with women in all chapters of their lives. It's about conversations and interactions that focus on who we are, not just what we do. It's about forming connections because we share the Duke experience.

Welcome to the Women’s Forum Career Advisory Network (CAN)! We are having a number of small, intimate pot luck dinners at the homes of Duke alumnae who are leading the way in their professional areas and who are willing to share their experiences and expertise with women who are interested in or already engaged in those same career fields.
Dinners are planned throughout the year and details will be posted on this webpage as they are confirmed.
