Webinar graphic, The Road Less Traveled: Tales from Yale Women Who’ve Followed Different Paths

Everyone knows Robert Frost's famous poem, "The Road Not Taken," but what is it like to take a less-traveled career path — or forge a completely new one? In this fast-paced webinar, we’ll learn from several Yale women who’ve made these choices. Featuring a panel discussion, video segments, and an interactive Q&A, this event will feature tales from their unusual “roads” and explore the rewards and impacts of their choices. Join us to find out how taking a less-traveled road has made "all the difference.”

The program will feature the following panelists:
