Get Confident: Spirits

When: Wednesday, 09/21 from 6-9PM

Where: Executive Meeting (Van Munching Hall)

Register: TBD

What: This event is one in a series to encourage women to try new activities that would be beneficial for their professional development and success in business, but come with a heightened level of intimidation (for some women). In this event, we will be teaching participants about the basics of different spirits, particularly bourbon and whiskey, that tend to have a strong male consumer base but will be consumed situationally within a business setting.  This event will be open to both men and women.
