Welcome to the DukeDC Women’s Forum, the oldest and most active Duke Women’s Forum in the country! We provide many opportunities for learning, career development, and fellowship in Washington, DC, ranging from our very popular quarterly speakers’ programs to Neighborhood Coffees to our Career Advisory Network, Community Service events, and outings to museums, wineries, art galleries, film festivals, and theatre.
We welcome alumnae from all of Duke’s Schools and departments, as well as current students, Duke parents, Duke men, and Duke grads visiting DC. While we sometimes focus on public policy issues, politics and foreign policy (this is Washington, DC after all!), our programming has covered an array of topics including caring for aging parents, women’s health, leadership, transitions in women’s lives, the arts, entrepreneurship, salary negotiation, and teens and social media.
Learn more about the Women's Forum by visiting the national program page.
