AMITA, the Association of MIT Alumnae, is sponsoring its annual "Life After MIT" event where students can network with MIT Alumnae. We will have informal roundtable discussions on a variety of topics including balancing a career and family, graduate school, entrepreneurship, and consulting. Current women students, both undergraduate and graduate, will have an opportunity to connect with alumnae and gain insight from their post-MIT experiences, challenges, and successes. Pizza and soda will be provided. To learn more about AMITA, check out the website.
