Join us for the second workshop in our Professional Development Series!
The focus will be on NETWORKING. Unlike other “networking” opportunities, this is not an event where folks are drinking beer/wine and talking to their friends. This event is organized to share knowledge, teach skills, and connect STEM professionals in a variety of fields and industries.
Speakers will provide insight to their unique professional development experiences, so don’t miss this opportunity to get input from local STEM professionals in Santa Barbara.
Speakers are followed by a fun, low-stress, facilitated networking activity where you’ll learn effective skills to network with anyone in any situation. These are essential skills to master in a fast paced world where candidate resumes are screened in less than 30 seconds!! As the saying goes, it’s all about who you know... right?
After this activity, you’ll know how to connect in a meaningful way with a stranger in any situation and simultaneously build your network. After all, in a town as small as Santa Barbara, you never know if the next person you meet will be your boss, your employee, your client, or a service provider.
Come for the (non-alcoholic) drinks and snacks, and stay for the opportunity to genuinely connect with STEM professionals and learn life-long skills to guide you toward ALL of your goals.
This even is open to ALL GENDERS and anyone who supports diversity and inclusion in STEM fields! We look forward to meeting and connecting with you!!
