Wesleyan Women in Science

Swipe right, Swipe Left! WesWIS is inviting you to a Student-Faculty Speed Networking event. There will be one faculty member from every NSM department. Students of all backgrounds, identities, interests and class year are encouraged to participate.

We will use a platform that allows students and faculty to be matched according to interests, sounds familiar? Both faculty and student will have the option to skip or accept the match. If both student and faculty accept the match, they have 5 minutes to chat and have the possibility to extend the meeting to 9 minutes. But do not worry about this now, we will spend the first few minutes of the event on Zoom to go over the logistics.

Please sign up here with your Wesleyan Email or RSVP to nharzallah@wesleyan.edu to get the Zoom link.
