Women in Bio – RTP 2020 Kickoff

Join Women in Bio at RTP for their 2020 Kickoff event! This is a great event for current Women and Bio members and ‎for people interested in learning more about the organization. This event is FREE for both ‎members and non-members. Come learn about the benefits of Women In Bio membership, the ‎‎2020 lineup of programming events, and the importance of personal branding. ‎Your personal brand is the core of who you are, not unlike your company’s brand or core values. ‎Your brand is your reputation. It is what you project to others. People’s opinions and expectations ‎of you will be defined by what kind of person they believe you to be. YOU determine your own ‎unique brand – instead of letting others build it for you. Paula and Lisa share practical steps for ‎discovering and then confidently sharing your unique brand. When your brand and career goals ‎align, they can take you to new heights.‎

The event will center around an interactive discussion followed by questions from the audience. ‎Food will be provided.
