EA DC Professional Networking Event

September 2, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

A large networking event to bring EAs in DC together to connect and discuss their careers and interests

Join EA DC for a large general professional networking event. Whether you’re considering a career change and looking to explore new options, looking for ways to connect with people in other fields to collaborate on EA work and projects, or just excited to meet a lot of really cool people doing really important work, this event is for you!

Location:

To be announced!

Structure of the event:

The event space will have stations for conversations about the following cause areas:

  • AI
  • Animal Welfare
  • Biosecurity
  • Global health and development
  • International Security and Foreign Policy

Members will be encouraged to network with others with similar interests and will also be free to discuss and meet people outside of these specific cause areas.

Vegan catering from Shouk will be provided!

Dress:

If you’re unsure of how you’d like to dress for the event we suggest business casual, but anything you’re comfortable with is great!

Goals for the event:

We want you to use this event to connect with lots of other EA DC members who can help you:

  • Be more effective in the career you currently have
  • Prioritize what to work on and where to work on it
  • Learn about EA activity in each cause area and professional field
  • Connect professionally and socially to the EA community in DC in general

You should aim to have a lot of conversations with different people and make yourself available to talk to people about what you do and what you’re interested in. Some attendees will have a lot of high-level experience in their cause area while others will be totally new or still in college. You can decide for yourself how you would like to keep in touch with members after the event. We encourage you to connect on LinkedIn and share other contact info with everyone you have a valuable conversation with.

Rules and Expectations:

  • Please keep all conversations professional and on-topic. Be polite and welcoming to everyone.
  • Try to avoid EA buzzwords and more technical language unless you know that the other person knows what you’re talking about. Expect to talk to EAs at very different career stages.
