Connecting with EA DC Members


We are incredibly fortunate to have a robust, growing community with members at all stages of life and career, and we want to take a moment to highlight opportunities for you to connect with one another, in addition to this month’s events:

  • EA DC now has an Intros.AI page where you can sign up to be connected to a new member over email each week, two weeks, or month for an introductory conversation. This is a great way to connect to other EAs in the area who share your interests. Sign up here!
  • If you are unsure where to start or are looking for particular advice or connections, you can schedule a 1-on-1 call with an EA DC Organizer.
