Go out to dinner or brunch with GWAN!

GWAN will be hosting five (5) Dinners/Brunches With Strangers events this quarter. This is a way for you to meet and connect with a diverse group of graduate and professional women. Dinners and brunches are hosted at restaurants around Evanston or Chicago by a member of the GWAN Leadership Team. So don’t worry about not knowing anyone—it’s all about meeting new people and building new connections!

Below are the dates and locations of the dinners and brunches to choose from. Meals last approximately 1.5 hours. Please indicate your first, second, third, and fourth choices by filling out the information below. If demand exceeds available spots, a lottery system will be used to select dinner/brunch participants.
