WE Insight

We all want to resume in-person networking events, but in this time of continued uncertainty, we must shift our mindset to utilize the valuable virtual resources at our fingertips. Here are three easy steps to maximize virtual networking opportunities: 

1. Attend a virtual WE event (click here to see an upcoming list of WE events)

2. Make note of the attendees. Choose at least one new contact to connect with on LinkedIn.

3. Reach out to one person in your existing network. Check in and catch-up!

It’s as simple as 1-2-3!

 "When I speak with people who love their jobs and have vital friendships at work, they always talk about how their workgroup is like a family."
