Alumni/Student Professional Networking Dinner
The Student/Alumni Professional Networking Dinner fosters and strengthens mentorship relationships between alumni and students. It aims to connect students and alumni with interests stemming through all professional fields. By creating a safe space to share experiences and knowledge, we produce a fruitful event. Each year, we pair students and alums with similar interests that makes for stimulating and powerful conversation. Through these discussions, students have the opportunity to learn from alumni about life in the workplace, issues particular to various fields and professions and ways to balance family life with community service and career. This annual winter event also provides students with the opportunity to network, learn about what it means to be a Stanford alumni and the many roles and responsibilities that come with that.
