Calendar of Activities

We do many events each year

San Jose Woman’s Club hosts activities throughout the year, including fundraisers, lectures, concerts, and events that benefit the community. Some events are just for fun, such as our annual Irish Pub Party in March and the Ice Cream Social in August. The Club’s women’s speaker series, Words from Women of Wisdom, features notable women of Silicon Valley and highlights the achievements of women.
