By Arlene Tate Schuler ’72, Alumnae Association President
This fall, the Alumnae Association launched our new series of networking events, “Get Linked with Lincoln.” We’ve held informal gatherings in Providence and Boston, and the response has been terrific. Alumnae have turned out in strong numbers to exchange contact and employment information, engage in stimulating conversation, and to hear about the incredible ways Lincoln women are contributing to their industries.

For me, the events have confirmed what I already knew to be true: Lincoln alumnae are leaders. I’ve heard inspiring stories from entrepreneurs, artists, engineers, psychologists—all of them risk-takers who have the confidence to succeed in their chosen fields. We have a powerful alumnae body; it’s time to develop, strengthen, and enhance those connections into a true network.
As Alumnae Association President, one of my central goals is to do just that. Please take some time to think about your own networking goals—Do you need to find a mentor, or could you serve as a mentor? Are you seeking contacts in your industry, or can you share contacts? Are you hoping to break into a new field, or are you well established?
The school wants to help us create opportunities for making connections, so please continue to take advantage of your Lincoln education and become a part of our network.
