First Coffee with WIMS was a success!
We had a wonderful turnout of 48 attendees on 8/7 for our first Coffee with WIMS discussion on Work-Life Balance!
Thank you to the speakers, Drs. Jamie Sturgill and Nikita Gupta, the student and trainee subcommittee members, and Ms. Fern Lewis for their help in creating this.
We received feedback from the students that they want to be a part of a community with their peers on campus.
We are energized and inspired to build this community and to host more professional development and networking events.
