Upcoming Coffee and Conversation

We host a monthly online, interactive webinar with a senior GWIS mentor and a small group of GWIS members.

 

These webinars are designed to allow for in-depth conversation and an opportunity to network directly with the speaker. Each month look for a preview of the speaker and a link for registration in our GWISConnect and GWISLead mailings. Only 7 registration spots are available for each session, so you’ll want to act fast once registration opens! We have recruited amazing mentors!
