GWA Monthly Book Club

Once monthly, our GWA Programming Committee hosts a “book” club in which our community come together to discuss books, short readings, or podcasts that relate to diverse experiences of womanhood, inside and outside of the workplace. All events require registration through Eventbrite, which is sent out to our community members by email. Currently, all book club meetings are hybrid.
