Lunch with a Leader- Register for Free Lunch with Industry Leaders

February 08, 2017

Lunch With a Leader provides opportunities to converse with industry leaders in a casual setting. Learn more about career paths and industry trends while you enjoy a free lunch that begins at 11:30 a.m.

You may only sign up for ONE of the spring lunches. If you are waitlisted for one (which you will not know until you receive an email), you may sign up for another. If you have already attended a Dinner with 9 Pioneers, you MAY sign up for a Lunch with a Leader. If it turns out you cannot attend the lunch, please notify as soon as possible so we can release the spot to a wait listed student. You may not transfer your position to another student–we will go through the wait list first.
