After a successful inaugural year, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is poised to kick off an engaging new season of its After Thoughts series of programs for women.
Designed to connect women in the community with UW-Green Bay, After Thoughts gatherings showcase UW-Green Bay faculty and staff and convene women after their workdays for learning, enrichment and fun. The sessions provide “After Thoughts” for participants to take with them when they leave.
Each of the After Thoughts sessions will take place from 5-7 p.m. in the Grand Foyer of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on the UW-Green Bay campus.

After Thoughts programming had a solid start during spring semester 2011, when two pilot sessions were held. The first, presented in March, featured UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Amy Wolf, Ecology, who spoke on “The Beauty of Bees and Their Impact on Our Lives.” The second, held April 5, was a presentation titled “In the Face of Disaster, How Resilient is Our Community?” from Lucy Arendt, associate professor of Business Administration. After Thoughts’ major sponsor is Billie Kress.
Each After Thoughts event begins with time to network, mingle and enjoy hors d’oeuvres before the featured speaker begins. Seating is limited, so advance registration is recommended. The cost of each program is $12, and attendees are invited to register for each event individually or all four at once.
