Session 1 of 4: Networking with Intention, Meaning and Ease
Do you feel that networking is as important as it is challenging?  Have you ever been intimidated at the thought of walking in to a room full of strangers and attempting to strike up a conversation?

Join us for the first DevLab on April 11 where Julie Harrelson will lead attendees through a workshop on how to network with meaning and authenticity. Attendees will walk away with tools and strategies that they can begin to use immediately in their efforts to make meaningful and beneficial connections.
