The event will run from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in OMSI’s Turbine Hall, and cost will be $10 for general attendees and $5 for students and post-docs. Additional processing fees apply. Appetizers will be catered by Bon Apetit, and drinks will be available for purchase.

The evening will feature networking games and prize drawings. Additionally, exhibits in Turbine Hall will be open for exploration. The event aims to help women network and find mentoring in the sciences — part of the WIS mission.

For registration, see the event page on EventBrite. No deadline was specified for online registrations, only that registration be done in advance of the event. If registration cost is a concern, email Trish Pruis, of WIS-Portland, pruist@ohsu.edu, as the organization doesn’t want price to discourage anyone from attending.
