Workshop Description:

We are more than just women. Each of us has complex multiple, important identities that shape how we view the world and how we operate in it, such as educational background, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, job status, geography, relationship status, and communication style. All of these factors make us who we are and play a role in how we network and build our networks. Come learn more about the complex multiple identities that shape you and your WEN colleagues and how these might influence your networking goals and results. This will be an interactive workshop and will include some pre-reading preparation.

This workshop also offers a great opportunity for our WEN colleagues on the Peninsula and the South Bay to meet other members and get engaged in our network.
