The RTP chapters of Women In Bio (WIB) and Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) have teamed up once again for our annual joint networking event. Building the right relationships — networking — is an integral part of our professional lives. While some people network with finesse, many people feel uncomfortable meeting new people and chatting in a professional yet memorable way. Sometimes we don't know how to "break the ice" or market ourselves appropriately when engaging in an informal setting. At this event, we’ll go over some networking best practices, and provide discussion prompts to help get your conversations started.
WIB and HBA have the mission of advancing women in the healthcare and life science industries and we want to offer you the opportunity to expand your professional network beyond your current organization. By bringing together women from both organizations, you will be able to network in a structured environment, meet new people, expand your circle, and enhance your business relationships. Don’t forget to bring your business cards!
Note: the NC Biotech Center is fully accessible to those with physical disabilities, and seating will be available throughout this event. If you need any additional accommodations, please contact us ahead of the event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
