About Spring Brunch
Every spring, Cap and Gown welcomes alumni back to campus to join actives, other students, and members of the Stanford community for great food and delightful conversation. The event also features several remarkable women leaders sharing their stories, reflections, insights, and inspirations. Past speakers have included Dr. Laura Carstensen, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Dr. Andrea Rees Davies, Kate Kelly, Dr. Christine Min Wotipka and Beth Ashley. It is a great opportunity for women of all ages to connect and share ideas.
The event also gives our actives an opportunity to recognize new honorary members that are selected in consultation with the Alumnae Board. Honoraries are chosen based on their sustained contribution to Stanford undergraduate women and their leadership in the community.
