Women in Fiber Lunch
The Fiber Broadband Association's Women in Fiber Committee is excited to be hosting a Women in Fiber lunch during this year's Fiber Connect! The virtual lunch will include an exercise and discussion panel with expert guest speakers: Megan Stull, Counsel at Google, Maura Corbett, President of Glen Echo Group, and Danna Stone, District Vice President at Graybar. The conversation will be focused on getting women comfortable with tooting their own horn so that they can really talk about what they are good at and developing a personal brand! We hope you will join us on Tuesday, December 15th, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm ET.
All attendees who register for the event by Monday December 7 at 5pm ET will receive a GrubHub lunch e-gift card, sponsored by Corning. Registration for the Women in Fiber session will remain open until Thursday, December 10th at 5 pm ET.
