HOSTED BY THE GUILD

 

The GUILD expands women’s careers and lives through the power of AI, to create smart, human connections. With our 1:1 introductions we're on a mission to make networking less awkward and more convenient for professional women.

We also host monthly activity-based networking events aimed at providing our members with the opportunity to gain skills, promote their businesses and organizations, and share best practices (and a glass of good wine) in a unique atmosphere.

 

With SERENDIPITY we've been taking this concept to the next level.

SERENDIPITY on our blog.
