 The READ - Fall 2011  
READ masthead

Would you like to be in a feature article in the Fall Issue of The READ?

We're looking for Networking stories, and the myriad ways one alumna can help another.

Branksome alumnae are in 65 countries and connecting with each other and the school has never been easier.

Often, paths cross and that "Branksome connection" links two or more people together, enhancing personal and/or business experiences. There are so many stories to tell!

If you are have:
  • mentored or been mentored    
  • networked for career purposes   
  • networked for educational purposes
  • connected with an alum in another city   
. . .then please contact Tanya Pimenoff,
by July 8, and your story may be featured in The READ.
