Evening with Columbia University Trustee Claire Shipman '86CC, '94SIPA

This event is sold out!

The Columbia University Club of Washington, D.C. / Columbia Alumni Association invite you for an evening with University Trustee and ABC NEWS Correspondent, Claire Shipman ’86CC, ’94SIPA as she talks about her latest bestseller, "The Confidence Code."

Join us on Tuesday, July 15 at The National Press Club where Trustee Shipman will discuss her travels into the frontiers of neuroscience on a hunt for the confidence gene.

Confidence. We want it. We need it. But it can be maddeningly enigmatic and out of reach. The authors of the New York Times bestseller Womenomics deconstruct this essential, elusive, and misunderstood quality and offer a blueprint for bringing more of it into our lives.

Is confidence hardwired into the DNA of a lucky few—or can anyone learn it? Is it best expressed by bravado, or is there another way to show confidence? Which is more important: confidence or competence? Why do so many women, even the most successful, struggle with feelings of self-doubt? Is there a secret to channeling our inner confidence?

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with Trustee Shipman in this illuminating conversation and with fellow Columbians.
