Get to Know the USPTO: Networking Event & Happy Hour

Event FlyerThe Leadership & Innovation Network in Commerce (LINC) will host “Get to Know the USPTO,” a Department of Commerce (DOC)-wide networking event, Wednesday, March 2 from 2 – 4 p.m. Participants will start their overview and tour in Madison West Room 207, and a happy hour will follow at Zikrayet at 2600 Eisenhower Avenue sponsored by the Supervisory Patent Examiners and Classifiers Organization (SPECO).

This is a great opportunity for USPTO employees to come and connect with our colleagues from across Commerce to share development opportunities, collaborative problem solving ideas, and best practices. It’s also a great opportunity for you to let others know about your affinity group here at the USPTO.

The LINC “Get to Know” series is designed to introduce DOC’s inner agencies to each other. LINC is a network of like-minded, action-oriented Commerce employees who engage across bureaus, innovate, and lead, to enhance the DOC workplace and contribute to operational excellence. For more information visit LINC contact Amber Ostrup, Laura Kahn, or Maryam Ipakchi.

Wise Mocktini Event and Benefit for Suited for Change on November 5th

Click for event flyerHello,

I wanted to invite you all and your members to a charity event we are having next week.

The event is free and should be a good networker with leadership within the office. Additionally, we are collecting gently used or new women’s suits, jewelry, bags and shoes to help Suited for Change, a wonderful organization helping disadvantaged women get into or back into the workforce by providing them with professional attire in addition to many resources for supporting their transition to a job or career. A representative from the organization will be in attendance to talk about the business incubator they have launched, supporting the entrepreneurial efforts of some of their clients.

Hope you can join us!

Sarah Al-Hashimi
