The organization will host its 16th annual Table Talk luncheon on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at the Hilton Americas Hotel in downtown Houston. The event co-chairs are CLASS alumna and former UH Alumni Association President Cheryl Creuzot and CLASS Dean’s Advisory Board Member Leisa Holland-Nelson.

Every year, this event recognizes women shaping the cultural, economic, political and physical landscape of Houston by asking them to lead a lunchtime conversation with other influential women and men.

This year’s Table Talk conversationalists include the Mayor of Houston, two astronauts, entrepreneurs, chief executive officers, authors, art curators, and finance mavens. Guests can have lunch with medical doctors tackling challenging health care issues ranging from psychiatric care for trauma survivors to the legal and ethical implications of genome research.

Tickets can be purchased here. Learn more about the conversationalists below:
