FOOD FOR THOUGHT
In September 2012, Food For Thought focused on a discussion of Intiative 502, with panelists
Steve Freng, Alison Holcomb, and Dominic Holden.
Our Food for Thought format is simple--invite women with something exciting to share about their lives and fill a room with women curious about the world around them who have little time to discover it on their own. Bring them together for dinner and let them introduce themselves at each meeting. Many women tell us they meet people they’ve always admired in the audience as well as on the podium.
Food for Thought is held the third Thursday of the month from September – May, from 5:30 p.m.– 7:00 p.m. at the Women’s University Club, 1105 6th Avenue in downtown Seattle. The cost is $45 in advance or $55 at the door.
Some past speakers and topics have included “Have We Broken Through The Glass Ceiling or Are We Just Pushing It Higher?” with top local women executives; The Psychology of Women and Under-earning” with Mikelann Valterra of the Women’s Earning Institute; “Afghani Women’s Health” with Dr. Nassim Assefi, global women's health specialist and fiction writer; “The State of Women in Politics, Dirty Tricks” with local elected officials; “Women and Filmmaking” with successful local filmmakers, directors and editors; and “Great Bites Around Seattle” with Nancy Leson, Seattle Times Food Critic.
