MASS AWIS is offering its members an exclusive opportunity to make professional connections across a variety of career paths. ‘Join Me for Coffee’ gives a chance to meet with a STEM professional for 1 hour at a coffee shop or café. Participants will not only learn about that person’s career but also establish a new professional connection.  These events are a great opportunity for participants to practice networking in an intimate setting, a skill that helps open doors to meaningful careers in STEM. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

The upcoming ‘Join Me for Coffee’ event series will feature the star panelists listed below. If you would like to participate in a ‘Join Me for Coffee’ event, first complete the event application form. A committee will then review all applications and select 4-6 participants for each event. Selected applicants will be  notified by email at least one week prior to the event. Upon selection notification, you will be required to  formally register for the event and pay the registration fee via our secure website. Selected applicants who fail to complete registration on time forfeit the opportunity to participate.

This event series is exclusive to MASS AWIS members registered with National AWIS,
with paid Massachusetts chapter dues or a MASS AWIS student chapter member.

Join MASS AWIS today for access to this series and other exclusive opportunities.
