“Spilling the Tea” for MIT Graduate Women

The “Spilling the Tea” series is back! At these small-scale, limited-enrollment events, join in a conversation with an alumna leader over (iced) tea and cookies. Each of the “Spilling the Tea” parties takes an important topic as its theme, such as women and leadership, women and communication, women and balance, and more. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to benefit from mentorship and community alongside fellow MIT graduate women. All MIT graduate students who identify as women are encouraged to attend.
