Coffee with Cornellians: Alumnae Gathering in Central New Jersey
June 13, 2019 @ 9:30 am
As students from the class of 2019 take their first post-graduation steps into the world, please join me in celebrating the remarkable accomplishments of our faculty and alumnae worldwide at the concluding “Coffee” of the 2018/19 season.
Since you’ll have an opportunity to get sand in your shoes at the beach, team members from the Northeast Corridor Alumni Affairs and Development team will give a brief update on Cornell’s work in marine conservation and also field your questions about Cornell.
But since we know how much we enjoy simply meeting with each other, sharing tips, and catching up, this is primarily a summer fun opportunity to also celebrate the great work that we’re doing in communities throughout central New Jersey.
RSVP and to learn more about the remarkable women of the Cornell community featured above. Looking forward to seeing you in June!

About Coffee with Cornellians:
We know that home-based moms, professionals with alternative working hours, and retired alumnae cannot always fit Cornell’s evening and weekend events into their schedules. Our mid-morning Coffee with Cornellians events offer opportunities for networking and intelligent conversation on relevant topics that you can drop in on after getting the kids to school, after exercise, before or after work or volunteer activities. We host three Coffee with Cornellians over the year, including an update on Cornell today and focusing on a topic of particular interest to alumnae in our community. Join us!
Here’s just a tiny sample of inspiring Cornell women, from left to right above. Representative of the astonishing qualities and skills students are bringing to Cornell, Isabella Culotta ’22 as a freshman is already working in the field of food security, helping Nepalese women with a solar-powered irrigation project. For her exceptional work, Isabella received the 2018 Elaine Szymoniak Award at the 2018 World Food Prize Laureate Award Ceremony in Des Moines, Iowa.
Former attorney Angela Winfield, J.D. ’08, is now Cornell’s associate vice president for inclusion and workforce diversity. She lost her sight at age 19 and after overcoming obstacles along her journey decided to lean into both experience and uncertainty, becoming a beacon of hope for many.
Deb Streeter was one of the original champions of entrepreneurship at Cornell, and now we have a new institute co-headed by alumna Kristen Barker ’92. Through their efforts, The Bank of America Institute for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Cornell is taught by female faculty via eCornell and offers entrepreneurs the skills, knowledge, and resources to build their own business.
