The chapter strives to plan events that offer opportunities to network with peers, potential scientific collaborators, and potential mentors.

Networking Hours are opportunities for graduate students and professionals to chat, get to know one another, and share advice in a casual setting. Madison Chapter will invite women in science who have expertise in a certain field to provide a starting point for the conversation.

For 2018-2019, upcoming networking hours and further details will be coming soon!
