Networking is crucial for multiple reasons such as creating new connections and opening up new opportunities for yourself. Our panel will explore the topic of networking and its power and importance for building confidence and community. There will be a further deep-dive into facing your fears, networking in the virtual space, how to build power of influence and build community. This will be followed by a live Q&A for our founders to ask questions.
