Annual Reception

The Women Faculty Forum hosts an annual Fall Opening Reception every September in Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.  Join us at the next reception to meet our leadership team, hear about gender at Yale from its leading professors and administrators, and share food and refreshments with faculty of all genders.

This year we welcomed over 100 guests and honored dozens of new women faculty members. The event featured remarks from WFF Chair Paula Kavathas (pictured in photo), Dean of the Faculty of the Arts and Sciences Tamar Gendler, and Lynn Cooley, Dean of the Graduate School of the Arts and Sciences. 

We were proud to offer free childcare at our reception for the first time this year. We hope to continue this in-demand service next year and to model a supportive way of hosting work events at Yale.
