Gather together online with your NYWIFT colleagues at our February 2023 virtual speed networking mixer. We will be joined by our friends from WIFT Toronto!
Come ready to share creative ideas, suggestions, and contact info for further engagement.
We will begin the evening with a ten-minute salon conversation to discuss WIFT Toronto’s latest opportunities and initiatives, followed by about 90 minutes of speed networking, during which you will be randomly paired off with other attendees to network one-on-one.
This is a great opportunity for NYWIFT members to network – internationally! – with their WIFT sisters.
NYWIFT will also offer a discount on membership to any new members who attend that evening.
NYWIFT hangouts are a safe space to ask entertainment related questions, seek advice, employment and other industry opportunities. Prep your elevator pitch and get ready to make connections! As always, all members are welcome and encouraged to attend and mix, mingle and get to know our dynamic and talented members and staff in an informal setting.
Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Please RSVP no later than Tuesday, February at 3 PM ET in order to attend.
