The N^2 Women (Networking Networking Women) luncheon is an informal
gathering intended to foster a sense of community by providing an
opportunity for those interested in women's issues to meet, network,
and share stories/advice. Especially important will be the connections
made between students and researchers, which will promote the benefits
of a research career. The luncheon will be held at the Hyatt Regency
Reston on Tuesday, September 26 from 12:30-2 P.M.
The luncheon is free if the participant is registered for the SECON
main conference and $25 otherwise (i.e., only registered for a
workshop or tutorial), payable by cash, check or credit card at the
time of registration.
This luncheon is open to all who are interested in issues pertaining to women in the field of networking. If you would like to attend, please email Wendi Heinzelman at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 20. We hope you will join us at SECON for this luncheon!
