All-ivy LGBT alumni, recent grads, and undergraduate and graduate/professional students are invited to attend a networking event. Whether you are contemplating graduate or professional school, thinking about changing jobs, interested in mentoring or just meeting new LGBT contacts, this event can be helpful to you. The format will begin with career field sector introduction groups (facilitated by an experienced alum), an "open mic" for self-introductions, then open mingling, light refreshments, casual conversations and networking.
About our evenings agenda:
6:30 pm - Arrive, Welcome
6:45 pm - Introduction Circles. This exercise will group alumni and students by employment sector for brief self-introductions.
7:15 pm - Short presentations
7:35 - Open Mic self-introductions (alumni who are hiring, work in multi-disciplinary careers or switched careers, or are in small disciplines).
7:50 - Open Mingling - we will have 4 sectors, as were noted in your registration (for-profit, non-profit, creative, STEM). You may move among the groups throughout the networking period.
