Small Group Peer Networking Meetup (9:00 – 10:00 a.m.)

Effective networking is a mix of give and take and these peer-to-peer Meetups are designed to do just that (and also take the intimidation out of networking). The Meetup is led by a facilitator who will guide participants through a series of prompts that will foster conversation and idea exchange. Everyone has the chance to “give” and to walk away with new insights, perspectives and connections. 

Facilitator: Alejandra Mielke, Founder & CEO, Latina Power Coaching

Featuring Talent Professionals representing Cisco

Networking Meetups will take place in the Networking & Connections Area. Advanced sign-up NOT required.
