Stanford Women Winter Welcome 2024


What it takes
to be a Trailblazer:
Insights from Congresswoman
Anna Eshoo

Winter Welcome celebrates the intergenerational community of Stanford women and gives you the opportunity to meet and welcome the newest members of the community: undergraduate and graduate students. The event will consist of informal roundtable conversations, a fireside chat with a featured speaker, and delicious treats for alumnae and students.

This year our keynote speaker is Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo of California’s 16th Congressional District. Elected in 1992, she's been a trailblazer, becoming the first woman to hold a ranking member title in the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. She championed legislation to bolster AI research with bipartisan initiatives and authored groundbreaking healthcare legislation. 


As the first woman to chair the Health Subcommittee, her impact has been profound, from shaping the Affordable Care Act to safeguarding genetic privacy. With 30 years of service, Congresswoman Eshoo brings a wealth of insights from her prolific career as she prepares to retire next January. Don't miss this opportunity to hear her reflections and lessons learned firsthand.

Date and Time: February 20th, 7-9PM PST

Location: Vidalakis Dining, 680 Jane Stanford Way, Vidalakis Bldg Stanford
