      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.

The 50th anniversary celebration is a two-day program curated by the Despierta Boricua Planning Committee, with an audience composed of Yale students, alumni, and members of the Puerto Rican community from across the nation. Our goal is to celebrate the efforts of Puerto Rican students at Yale in cultivating their own space within the Yale community and establishing an important legacy in Yale’s history. As such, our event theme “Despierta Boricua: Honoring Our Past, Igniting Our Future” serves to highlight the struggles and successes of Puerto Rican Yalies in driving social, racial, and economic change on campus.
