February - Speed Networking Roundtables (February 6, 2024)

Our annual Speed Networking Roundtable event returned with a bang at Husky Stadium. Against the backdrop of the PAC 12 Champions' home, professionals from various career stages gathered for an evening of enriching discussions on leadership, communication, culture, and personal development. The event buzzed with energy as attendees engaged in in-depth conversations with industry experts, gaining valuable insights and forging meaningful connections.

January - Invest in YOU Event (January 16, 2024)

On January 16th, 2024, WISE Seattle members gathered at the Hyatt Regency Seattle for the first chapter event of the new year. The event’s focus was on connecting with other members as well as welcoming new faces, and exchanging ideas for how we can reset for the new year.

The theme was “Invest in YOU” and all attendees were treated to a complimentary headshot photo, thanks to Alabastro Photography, and learned about how to refresh their wardrobe with Armoire.

The Hyatt Regency Seattle provided complimentary beverages and a delicious food spread, including Seattle favorites like Beecher’s mac and cheese and chowder. We ended the evening with a raffle thanks to our partners at Swire Coco-Cola and gave away magnets featuring the 2024 event calendar.
