Description

Come join us as we kick off the WIP Chapter in the Bay Area Peninsula/Silicon Valley! We will be discussing career growth and how can you start thinking about what's next in 2019.

Description: As we get closer to the beginning of a brand new year, we want to share our vision and goals for the new WIP chapter and gather your input on what you would like the new chapter to focus on.
