Princeton Women’s Network (PWN) of Princeton

Welcome to the PWN of the Princeton Area!  We are a newer PWN, started in September 2018 – we look forward to area alumnae joining the groups and activities in our second year, and we welcome new volunteers!  

A number of special interest groups started last year, some need new leaders.  If you would like to participate in one, feel free to contact that leader.  If you'd like to lead one, please contact Diane.

COVID-19 Update

As we all do our best to 'stay home' some of our events are postponed, others will be virtual.  Note that Book Club will meet via zoom on April 30, all are welcome (detials below)!  Suggestions for new virtual get-togethers, as well as ways to be of service during this time, are most welcome! 

Special Interest Groups and Leaders

          Book Club – Sara Alyea '88
          French Rendez-vous – Brigitte Aflalo-Calderon S65 
          Potluck and Conversation – Diane Hasling '79 
          Show and Dinner – Leader needed
          Walking Group – Hanaa Rohman ’11 

Virtual Book Club April 30!

We will join the PA3 Book Club on Thursday, April 30 for a special meeting with Lydia Denworth '88, the author of Friendship: The Evolution, Biology, and Extraordinary Power of Life's Fundamental Bond.   Though we selected this book before the pandemic arrived here, it is perhaps even more relevant in these 'social distancing' times.  We will now meet via zoom!  For details and to request the zoom link, see the Book Club post in PA3 events.

To get on the email list for Book Club, and for information on the location of the meeting each month, contact Sara at the email above. We generally meet on the second Tuesday or Wednesday of each month. 

French Rendez-vous is an opportunity for casual French conversation and instruction led by Brigitte, a native French speaker. These resumed on Thursday, February 6, 6:30-7:30, for Beginners, but newcomers are still welcome!.  This will likely meet the first Thursday of each month.  RSVP to Brigette if you can attend.  Postponed, start TBD

Potluck and Conversation resumed in February.  If you'd like to join the group email list, email Diane ( Watch for a virtual get together.

The Walking Group will resume in the spring.  Email Hanna if you would like to be on her contact list.  Hope to start this summer!

Activity Ideas

Some ideas for activities this year include a Panel celebrating 50 Years of Undergraduate Women on Campus, Wine Tasting, AR Workshop DIY project, Sip and Paint, Cooking session, and suporting Princeton women's athletics.  If you'd like to lead one of these, or have ideas for other activities, we welcome your involvement and suggestions!
