Community Resource Guide Brainstorming Session

3:30-4:30PM Thursday, April 13 | WCC Main Lounge

Featuring boba from Teaspoon!

We are creating a WCC Community Resource Guide to preserve institutional knowledge within our vibrant community. The guide will be available to all students, and will feature advice on topics such as how to get to know professors, recommendations for excellent Stanford experiences, ways to branch out of your friend group, can’t-miss classes, and more. Because it’s a community guide, we want *your* input via this fun brainstorming session with boba from Teaspoon!

This year and right in the middle of Women’s History Month, she put together a program to point out the imbalance in ballet when it comes to the gender of choreographers and composers.” Read about it here.
