Facilitated by a seasoned practitioner, these groups meet once a quarter to network and brainstorm. We add new ones as the PICA community grows but currently we have groups related to social good (non-profits), HR & coaching, and healthcare/lifesciences/biotech.Free to PICA members | Affinity groups run on various cycles; send us an email if you're interested.
Remember when you could drop by the professor's office and ask a question? This is the same thing but virtual. Once or twice a week, PICA's Chief Advocate Liz Steblay hangs out in a virtual meeting room, ready for PICA members to drop in and ask a quick question. Sometimes these sessions are small group brainstorming sessions, sometimes they’re ad hoc 1:1 coaching. Either way, you’ll get the help you need.Free to members | Find an upcoming coaching session
