Jan 23, 2014 | Berkeley, CA
Through this event, they aim to bring together young women from a wide range of scientific disciplines with female faculty and industry professionals for mentorship and guidance. Their goal is to create a safe space for discussion about academic and industry career paths that allow women to learn more about their intended fields and gain advice on how to navigate their future educational and career path.
The event will be held on January 23rd, from 6-9pm at the Alumni House on the south side of the UC Berkeley campus. The event will mainly be cocktail-style, with hors d'oeuvres and non-alcoholic beverages provided. The event will be broken down into multiple 30-minute cocktail-style networking periods, during which attendees (professionals, undergraduates, graduate students) will freely network with each other. Between the networking periods, there will be short events such as speeches by keynote speakers, a discussion about women in science, and a performance by California Golden Overtones. The event will be in formal attire. They are looking for professionals who can attend the event to network, share their stories and become mentors.
