Women in OR/MS Networking Breakfast


   From Doing to Leading 


Join us on Tuesday, from 7-8am for breakfast, networking, and knowledge sharing. Throughout our careers we transition from project to project, role to role, and individual contributor to leader (and maybe back again). These transitions aren’t always seamless, and we’re often weighed down with things we can’t let go of, for whatever reason. We’ll learn from each other about what’s worked and what hasn’t and leave with new connections and ideas.

Emmy Smith will facilitate From Doing to Leading WORMS Networking Breakfast
