Networking Challenge, PA Progressive Summit

I am attending the PA Progressive Summit this weekend, and I am giving myself a networking challenge. I've never liked networking because it requires talking to strangers — I have previously discussed my discomfort with introducing myself/talking to strangers. However, I'm realizing that networking is extremely important in most industries, certainly for the career I plan to have in Activism. With that in mind, I'm going to take this Summit as an opportunity to jump in, introduce myself, and make connections. I am going to try to introduce myself to at least one person per session I attend. I shall report back next week.

  1. Good luck! Sounds like an awesome event; I hope you have fun! I, too, struggle at introducing myself to people at these things. It's a great idea, though. -Jordan
