Join Me for Coffee with Lissette Steele

Thursday, May 11, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

MASS AWIS is offering an opportunity to make professional connections across a variety of career paths. The ‘Join Me for Coffee’ event series provides a chance to meet with a STEM professional for 1 hour online or in-person. Participants will not only learn about that person’s career but also establish a new professional connection. These events are a great opportunity for participants to practice networking in an intimate setting, a skill that helps open doors to meaningful careers in STEM.

The upcoming ‘Join Me for Coffee’ event will be virtual and will feature Lissette Steele. If you would like to participate in this ‘Join Me for Coffee’ event, first complete the event application form. A committee will then review all applications and select 4-6 participants for each event. Selected applicants will be notified by email at least one week prior to the event.

positioning and communications. She has a particular affinity for working with companies pioneering innovative approaches to treat disease—cell and gene therapy, targeted protein degradation, genetic and epigenetic editing, RNA therapeutics, and more—working across a
broad range of therapeutic areas. She is also passionate about working with women’s health
