WEST Book Club
#WESTbookclub

WEST is offering a book club for WEST members focusing on women's career advancement. We will have a meeting with a new book every other month. We would like participants to commit to four sessions to create a supportive community.  

We will have a facilitator for each discussion group who will have read the book, so even if you don't finish the whole book you should still attend and enjoy the conversation. We understand people get busy at certain times of the year and may not get to finish every book. We have selected the books based on member suggestions.
