There's nothing I've learned more through college and now in the professional world than to always network. The more people you know, the more connections you make, the more of an impression you leave behind - will only lead to future partnerships, job offers, or recommendations. It is a key part of any job industry. One organization has taken this vital opportunity and turned it into an event that gives back. Check it out!
Young Professionals Preventing Breast Cancer, a division of Art beCAUSE Breast Cancer Foundation, puts together a number of networking and social events throughout the year. This division was formed in early 2013 to make women and men in the age bracket of 25 to 49 aware of the alarming and unexplained rise in breast cancer in their age group and what can be done to prevent the disease. The group’s mission is to use data from research funded by the Art beCAUSE Breast Cancer Foundation and educate younger women and men on how chemicals in our environment and our every-day products cause breast cancer and ways to choose healthier lifestyle options.
This is something I'm passionate about as many people in my life have been effected by breast cancer. It also tugs at my heart-strings that there are young professionals willing to take time from their busy schedules to educate and share in this great cause. I encourage you all to join the Art beCAUSE Breast Cancer Foundation as well as the Young Professionals Preventing Breast Cancer division if you're looking to get involved in a local charitable organization and also grow your future opportunities through their networking and social events.
The next networking event hosted by the Young Professionals Preventing Breast Cancer division will be held this Thursday, June 11th, from 7-8:30PM at Harpoon Brewery in the Seaport District of Boston. This is the 2nd Annual Tastings for a Cause which includes a tasting of Harpoon Brewery's amazing craft beers and ciders, pizza and desserts, networking (so bring your business cards), and awesome raffle prizes. A pint of beer can make all the difference! Tickets are just $40.
So take the time to beCAUSE and devour the details of networking with this amazing organization!
