Northern California Women's Forum

The purpose of the Duke Women’s Forum in Northern California is to bring together a multigenerational cross section of Duke women to develop educational programming, new opportunities for leadership, networking, and mentorship, and closer personal ties to the university. We welcome all Duke alumnae – of all ages and from all of Duke’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools – to get involved. Learn more about Duke’s Women’s Forum program.
