With beautiful skylines of the bay, eight members of the HBA San Francisco chapter gathered for a dinner program called HB8 on 4/18/13 at Paragon in Berkeley. HB8 features a series of dinners throughout the Bay Area where small groups of eight network and meet over a lovely dinner. The wonderful women around the table introduced themselves, their areas of interest, involvement and commitment to the HBA and were thrilled to be hosted by our local HBA SF chapter president, Carol Wells. Carol was so gracious, making the new 2013 members feel welcome and included. The group shared stories of career paths, challenges and personal interests. It was fascinating to hear the varied backgrounds and learning more about different specialties and skills. There was a heightened sense of curiosity and desire to learn about each other. We developed camaraderie, gained friendships and common goals to continue supporting one other both professionally and personally.
After attending an HB8 dinner, we each have seven new friends and colleagues, and moving forward look forward to sharing our personal and career paths together. Thank you to the HBA San Francisco chapter and Carol for a night to remember. To learn more about HB8 dinners, click here.
