A QUICK UPDATE...and more.

As some of you know, the volunteering work of our team and members extends beyond the doors of NAWIC

Today, we want to use this platform to share updates and to give you an opportunity to get involved beyond this network. We will even share some amazing job opportunities from our extended network which may be of interest.


Before we do, however, allow us to thank publicly those of you who participated and attended the Regional Conference events. It was a big task to put together and run so many discussions but we were proud of the results. If you missed it, you will find the videos here: LINK
