Closing Ceremonies & Alumnae Weekend
Celebrate the end of our Sesquicentennial Celebration from May 1 to May 3, 2020
Alumnae Weekend serves as the bookend to September’s Founder’s Day Weekend festivities. In addition to events for reunioning and non-reunioning alumnae alike, Alumnae Weekend closes our Sesquicentennial Celebration by bringing our full community together for empowering conversations and a party that is not to be missed.
Making "Her-story": A Conversation with Billie Jean King, moderated by Tory Robinson Burch '84
May 1, 2020
5 to 7 p.m.
The Agnes Irwin School Gymnasium
In this special fireside chat, Tory Robinson Burch '84 will distill key insights from tennis legend and social activist Billie Jean King, including how Billie Jean's natural passion for tennis evolved into a purpose-driven life of activism for equality — and improved the world for women to come. Along the way, we will also glean insights from the journey of our own Tory Robinson Burch '84, who, since graduating from Agnes Irwin, has not only built a fashion empire, but also developed an innovative model for women's empowerment and entrepreneurship through her work at the Tory Burch Foundation.
Don't miss this evening of joyful discovery during which members of the audience will have the chance to ask questions and participate in a meet and greet! Attendees will leave inspired to explore their own authentic forms of making "her-story."
May 1 to May 3, 2020

In honor of the 150th Anniversary, Reunion Weekend has expanded to become Alumnae Weekend! This weekend will feature all-alumnae events, in addition to traditional class-specific activities for Reunion classes ending in 5 and 0.
A full schedule of Alumnae Weekend events will be released in early 2020.
In the meantime, see more on-campus alumnae events or check out photos from last year's reunion weekend.
