"Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one." - Jane Howard, Margaret Mead

Do you shy away from networking? Is the prospect of walking into a room full of strangers, or speaking to a new person scary for you? You are not alone, most people hate the concept of "networking". However, we’ve all heard the phrase, “it’s not what you know, but who you know".  

Done right, networking enables women to join communities, build relationships, raise profile, identify role models, find mentors and sponsors and expand our business opportunities. As we rise in our careers, we can also use our networks to help others coming up behind us.

Not only can joining communities outside of work help push us ahead at work, the relationships we make can provide a valuable support network. Plus it's a lot of fun. 

In this session, we will discuss the importance of finding our [work] tribes. Our speakers will provide some top tips on how to get started and how to become comfortable with putting yourself out there when it comes to networking and self-promotion.
