Are you looking to expand your professional network, discover new opportunities, and share your experience and expertise with other chemical engineers? Look no further! Our virtual networking event is the perfect opportunity for you to connect with like-minded professionals and build lasting relationships.

During the event, you'll have the chance to meet and interact with other chemical engineers in a series of short breakout sessions. You'll be paired with a new partner in each session, giving you the opportunity to make multiple new connections and learn from a diverse group of professionals. By the end of the hour, you'll have made 5-10 new connections, gained valuable insights, and had some fun!

We're hoping to have a diverse mix of individuals at different stages in their careers. As this is our first event of this type, numbers will be limited, so sign up early!

  • Sharing of career paths and gaining new ideas for career progression
  • What's the best career advice you've received and would like to share?
  • Are you stuck on something that a group of like-minded chemical engineers could help with?
  • What do you wish you'd known earlier in your career that might help someone else now!
