Join WP+D for a networking brown bag on Monday, December 15 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. to discuss professional development and career plans with December's featured guest, Sarah Wetmore, Vice President and Research Director of the Civic Federation!

As the Vice President and Research Director, Sarah oversees all of the Civic Federation’s research efforts. She joined the Federation in 2006 and was previously the Civic Federation’s Director of Communications, managing all media and public relations in addition to directing the redesign of the Federation’s website.

Sarah earned her Master of Arts degree in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago in 2004. Her 2005 Johnson Prize-winning thesis, "The 2001-2002 Crisis and Democratic Stability in Argentina," used a case study methodology to explore the effects of the 2001-2002 politico-economic crisis on Argentine democracy.

Prior to joining the Civic Federation, Sarah worked as an analyst with a boutique investment consulting firm and at DePaul University. She holds a BA from Knox College, where she graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa and won the Dean Acheson Prize for Outstanding International Relations Major.

Sarah serves as a trustee of the Governmental Research Association (GRA) and on the University of Illinois at Chicago MPA Advisory Committee. When not analyzing public policy, Sarah splits her time between cheering on the Chicago White Sox and learning aerial acrobatics.

Join us December 15th to network and to hear more about Sarah's current work and career path.  There will be a WP+D sign at the table where we will meet.

This is a members-only event limited to five participants. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunches.

As with every WP+D Small Networking Lunch, registration will open at 1:00 p.m. the first day of the month during which the lunch will be held.  Registrations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis and typically fill up quickly.

Due to the popularity of these lunches, we ask that members register for no more than two consecutive lunches. If you have attended the past two lunches and are interested in attending this event, please e-mail us at wpdchicago@gmail.com asking to be put on the waitlist. If spaces become available or registration isn't full a week in advance, we will contact you.
