Dublin School Women's Retreat Weekend

A Weekend of Inspiration, Empowerment, and Fun!

Dublin School may have started as a school for boys, but throughout its history, it has known and educated so many amazing women. I have had the privilege of knowing, teaching, and working with many of you. For years, I have dreamed of a chance to bring everyone together to share each other’s stories, wisdom, and advice for the benefit of each other, the young women enrolled today, and the future of our School. The 2019 Dublin Women’s Retreat is the first attempt to create that kind of meaningful and enjoyable opportunity.

We have worked hard to pull together a balanced weekend of enjoyment and meaningful work. A full schedule of the week- end’s events is available via the online registration. If you have an idea of something to share or how you could help make the weekend more successful, please let us know. The Dublin Women’s Retreat is a weekend for the Women of Dublin, created by those same women.

We know the lives of extraordinary women are extraordinarily busy. However, I hope you will seriously consider taking the first weekend in October to recharge and reconnect with other Dublin alumnae and students. Our lives have collectively been shaped by the same beautiful corner of New Hampshire and by many of the same talented educators and peers. I hope you agree that time spent together can only lead to innumerable opportunities for all of us. Let’s get started.

Sincerely yours,

Erika Rogers, P ’21
Director of Alumni & Development
