In celebration of WRISE Week (Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy) this June, please join WRISE’s Seattle Chapter for a night of socializing and networking at Marten Law in downtown Seattle. Many of WRISE’s 35 chapters across the U.S. and Canada will be hosting events this week. WRISE's community has grown quite a bit over the last year and this is an excellent opportunity to plug in with WRISE's local Seattle Chapter if you haven’t done so already.
The evening will provide a unique opportunity to connect with colleagues and peers within the renewable energy industry outside of more formal WRISE events to engage, learn, and socialize with one another. There will be some prompted discussion on topics relevant to the renewable and sustainability industry, but otherwise it will open up for regular networking. Wine, beer and hors-d’oeuvres will be served, and the Seattle Chapter leaders will also provide information about upcoming events.
Includes Happy Hour & Prompted Discussion
