For our fifth annual luncheon, PGWISE has invited graduate alumnae from Biomedical Graduate Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, Mathematics, and Engineering to meet and mingle with current graduate students over hors d'oeuvres and a buffet lunch. The invites went out to alumnae in early March and RSVP's are pouring in - respondents thus far include a patent attorney, research scientists, systems engineers, assistant professors, a forensic computing expert, and a director of investments, life science. Our keynote speaker is to be announced. Participants will receive a program with contact information for most of the alumnae participants. The luncheon will be a great opportunity for you to get advice about career planning, learn more about possible companies or job tracks, and make connections with Penn graduates who are eager to share their experiences.
