People and relationships are an integral part of professional success. However, you know when you receive an event invitation and you should go, but AGH, you’re just going to feel awkward!? Halle will give you tools to show up as your most confident self and equip you with strategies to success-fully navigate and capitalize on those conversations.

Spend Galentines with TechPoint!

TechPoint Foundation for Youth, a local nonprofit that supports K-12 STEM programming for underserved youth, is hosting a fun, ladies-only fundraising event on Galentine's Day, February 13th. 

Teams will be equipped with VEX IQ robots (the same that students use in competition) to design, build, and compete against other groups. The game this year is called "Danger Zone" - Top Gun-themed. Teams of 6 can sign up for a night of Sun King beer, pizza, and friendly competition.

Proceeds from the event benefit Techpoint's programming such as robotics teams, coding clubs, and other hands-on activities in schools and communities across Indiana.
