Race & Mental Illness, Networking, Pres. McCartney & Maya Lin on Redesigning Neilson Library

Dear Reader,

The work of award-winning Latina Feminist Dior Vargas '09 has been covered by media outlets including Newsweek, Vice, BuzzFeed, MTV News and many others. In launching her People of Color and Mental Illness Photo Project, she hopes to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness within communities of color. The project, which shows men and women holding signs describing how they are living with mental illness, aims to create community and serve as a resource for those struggling with this important issue. Dior speaks about the project, its next phase and the Intersection of Race and Mental Illness on Tuesday, January 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm (Midtown location provided to registered attendees). 

On Wednesday, January 20, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, the Office of Alumnae Relations at Smith hosts a Young Alumnae and Student Networking Night. This free event, sponsored by The Smith College Business Network, invites young alumnae to connect with current students to share tips on working and living in New York City. The focus for this event is on consumer goods, women's reproductive rights / justice, NGOs and start-ups / entrepreneurism. The event is at the United Jewish Federation Building at 130 East 59th Street; you must register by January 18 to attend. 

On Friday, January 22, from 8:00 to 10:00 am, it's a morning of Real Stories of Entrepreneurs, where alumnae discuss the spectrum from frustration to triumph and what they wish they had known about starting their own businesses, including how they started and grew their endeavors. If you are thinking about following your entrepreneurial spirit, this is the event for you. 

Mark your calendars now for another College event - a talk on 
Reimagining Neilson: A Library for the 21st Century - on Thursday, February 11, at 6:00 pm. Smith College President Kathleen McCartney and Provost and Dean of the Faculty Katherine Rowe speak with renowned architectural designer Maya Lin about her vision in redesigning Neilson and how Smith is addressing the changing needs of scholars and students in this exciting plan.
