Do you want to meet scientists from outside your department and in different career paths? Try speed networking with AWIS!
Speed networking is a fun, structured and fast paced networking event allowing participants to interact with others, typically in a series of brief one-on-one information exchanges. Speed networking gives you the opportunity to have short conversations with many scientists, building contacts in other fields and careers, starting new opportunities and learning information about different careers.
Networking can be one of the most powerful and productive activities an individual can do to launch and manage their career. Building an interconnected group of relationships with others is at the core of a person’s effectiveness both personally and professionally. Whether a student, postdoc, young careerist, or seasoned professional, having a network of people you can tap into for information, advice and opportunities, while sharing your own, is paramount. This career event will be informal and move quickly—like speed dating—with an opportunity to speak to scientists individually and practice your networking skills.
This event is open for scientists at all levels from graduate students to seasoned professionals in academia and industry.
