On the 16th of December 2020, WIL Europe organised its first “Members Virtual Networking” meet up, an opportunity for our Members to re-connect with their peers from across Europe, in small groups, to discuss personal and professional issues and discover new ideas and ways of thinking.
The event opened with an introduction by our President, Thaima Samman, before members moved to breakout rooms for a networking session. Among the topics discussed, our members considered how to attract more women into STEM careers, including through the promotion of role models for younger women in the field, and also shared their tips on how they are coping with working from home and managing teams at distance in the current crisis.
Thank you very much to the participants for joining us on this occasion. We look forward to welcoming you at our next virtual networking event in early 2021!
