On Thursday, 28 Feb 2019, a joint networking event organized by HBA Montgomery Corridor and Women in Bio (WIB)-Capital Region took place at Not Your Average Joe’s restaurant in Bethesda, Maryland. The reserved space was quickly filled with approximately 40 female and a few male professionals ready to make connections and enjoy each other’s company over some delicious food and drinks. The event lasted for two hours and included some great conversations. As an attendee, I got to meet many WIB members, some of which happened to be my colleagues at work. I also had the opportunity to talk about HBA Montgomery Corridor and its upcoming events. Overall, from the feedback I gathered, everyone seemed to enjoy the event and therefore the event’s goal of getting both organization’s members under the same roof for networking and having a great time was achieved.
