Event Details

Join Women In Product and LinkedIn for a networking event and panel discussion on how women (and men!) in product leadership positions have leveraged their networks to advance their careers. Networking is sometimes considered an unpleasant activity and women, especially, are uncomfortable with networking. However, your network can be your most powerful asset in advancing your career. Learn from the panel on how to make your network count. #TheWayIn.


Doors are open at 5pm. Appetizers and beverages will be provided. Please arrive early to mix, mingle and have a LinkedIn employee help you rock your profile and update your photo with a professional head shot! We will have time for Q&A from the audience afterwards. A nominal fee of $10 is requested to cover WIP programming costs for local events and our annual conference.


Our panel consists of leaders in product, design, and executive roles at top companies.
