The MWL Professional Parents Affinity Group hosts monthly luncheons or events, which provide a relaxed environment for MWL's working parents to meet with one another and share their experiences, challenges and successes. Based on member input, upcoming gatherings will feature both focused discussions led by a speaker, as well as more casual opportunities to meet and network with one another. All gatherings (unless otherwise noted) are FREE brown bag luncheons (bring your own). If you are unable to attend an upcoming meeting, but would like to be kept up-to-date on future luncheons, contact email@example.com to be added to the emailing list.
