Our February networking event at Wine Styles ended up being one of our best turn outs yet! About 30 of us learned about various “wine styles” from our host, Bob and sampled three whites and three reds. In addition to learning about the different styles of whites and reds, Bob taught us how to aerate our wine. It was amazing how allowing the wine to breath enhanced its aroma, smoothed the wine and improved the taste. Bob served us crackers, meat and cheese and taught us which cheeses pair best with which wine styles. He even sent each of us home with a chocolate truffle!
There were a lot of new faces at this networking event. It was great to meet all of the new amazing women joining our group! We had fun learning where everyone worked and what roles they filled in their organizations. We talked informally about the challenges of being a woman in technology, what we’re doing to try to change that and also about new opportunities that we may be able to take on as a group to help change that dynamic. We also got to see pictures of kids, hear about family vacations and learn more about eachother personally. Thanks to all of the amazing women that came out to network!
