Today is a fine day; not only will I finally receive my four friends from Sweden, but I will also be attending the AWIS (Association for Women in Science) Award Banquet for Scientific Advancement at the MV Skansonia this evening. Judging by the invitation, it could be a really nice event.
Dress, check. Black pumps, check. I'm ready for some buoyant networking!“Begin the evening with pre-dinner drinks and networking on the stern of the ship overlooking beautiful Lake Union and downtown. Then join us for a banquet featuring awards to our dedicated members, undergraduate scholarship winners, and our featured speaker Sheila Lukehart. Wrap-up the night with another opportunity to mingle and network over dessert and a cup of coffee.”
