About the Program Topic

We say friends are important. Somewhere deep down, we know they are. And yet, what difference do they really make? As women, we are often more relational than the men in our lives. And that desire to connect with others has been, at times, the object of not too flattering stereotyping. We're going to spend some time looking at what impact friends have on our lives and what we can do about it.
