Overcome Your Objections and Leverage the Benefits of Networking

February 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us at this next event in our Brown Bag series to hear from Sue Maitland about the importance of networking.

Since 1981, SCWIST has made great strides in promoting and empowering women in STEM. When you register, please consider adding a small donation to support our programs so all interested women and girls can see where a future in STEM can take them.

Networking is an essential skill in today’s fast paced and ever-changing world. It can make a huge difference to the opportunities you uncover and the support and success you experience in your career. Sadly, many people have an aversion to networking and our workshop leader, Professional Life Coach, Sue Maitland, was one of them. Now she’s a passionate advocate for the benefits of networking and even developed a workshop Networking for Success to help others embrace making powerful connections through networking. Sue will share her first traumatic experience with networking and you’ll learn how she was able to recover from it and learn to love to network.

In this event you’ll:

  • Uncover the barriers that stop us from networking
  • Re-frame your perception of networking
  • Understand the benefits of a strong and supportive network

Join us and commit to growing your network in the coming months. You’ll see positive outcomes in your professional and personal life.
