On Saturday, November 14th, 2015, I attended the 125th Anniversary event for the New York Wellesley Club (NYWC). The NYWC’s first meeting took place on December 13, 1890, just eleven years after Wellesley College graduated its first class of eighteen women. Today, the Club serves 2,700 alumnae in the city’s five boroughs. NYC’s First Lady, Charlene McCray ’76 kicked off the day with NYWC President Brooke Bryant ’03.

Always with a sense of humor and a bit of mischievousness, Tao had the crowd laughing and in awe.

From October 10th through 12th, 2014, I reconnected with friends, met new colleagues, learned interesting things – all in one of my most nostalgic places. Being in Cambridge brings me back to my college and graduate school days. I love the New England environment and have a great fondness for the Harvard community.
GLOBAL VIEWS: I was just in South Africa a few weeks ago and had lunch in Mandela Square in Sandton City, a commercial and entertainment hub in the heart of Johannesburg. A jovial bronzed statute of Nelson Mandela towers almost twenty feet above the sidewalk cafés and exclusive boutiques. People of different nationalities co-mingle as they dine and shop under foot. Adjacent to the luxurious Michelangelo Hotel, the statute and Square represent a South Africa that Nelson Mandela helped create – where all are considered equal under the constitution and the country itself can participate freely in the global economy.
