Drop the persona and discuss topics important to us as women in workforce. We don't assign a book to read, rather we ask you bring with you something that's inspired you about the topic that month. It can be a book, a poem, a piece of art, or a song. If it speaks to you, chances are it will speak to others as well. 

And, at each quarterly luncheon, we'll have available our collective book, poem, song, art suggestions.
