Networking Circles

networking circles poster


In the afternoon, we have scheduled special sessions – called “Networking Circles” – which will focus on career readiness and students' transition to the workforce, whether it be into business, industry, or academia. There will be several “Circles” led by a Circle Leader talking with a small group of conference participants. While the poster session is going on, students will sign up for one of the "Circles" that best suits their interests. After the poster session, the students will then meet up as a small group with the Circle Leader they selected.

Our Circle Leaders are professionals in diverse STEM fields who will share their own career stories, learn about you and your own journey in STEM, and offer guidance to help you succeed. These discussions will be fun and informal (with popcorn and munchies, too!)
