Ladies who science, start your networking engines!
Women In Science’s Portland chapter has a full plate of career workshops, networking happy hours, mixers, meetings and conferences coming up.
First up, WIS is looking for women and allies interested in becoming more involved with the local chapter. Its next steering committee meeting will be held Sept. 12, including a conference-call option for those not working at Oregon Health and Science University, which many local WISers call home. Contact WIS-Portland for more information.
Then, on Sept. 13, will come WIS-Portland’s next networking happy hour, which will be co-hosted by the Northwest chapter of the American Medical Writers Association. The happy hour will run from 6 to 8 p.m. at Carmella’s Wines, 1320 S.E. Water Ave.
Later on in September, WIS will co-host a negotiation career workshop with ChickTech. The three-week workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on consecutive Thursdays — Sept. 22 and 29 and Oct. 6 — in the Collaborative Life Sciences Building on Portland’s South Waterfront, 2730 S.W. Moody Ave. Jessica Williams, a certified life coach and founder of the Superwoman Project, will lead the sessions. Cost will be $30 and light food will be provided. Registration details are to be announced.
