A network is a group of people who are connected in some way and who exchange something, such as information, ideas, or favors. Your network can also be your support system, which can include your closest and your most distant colleagues, collaborators, current and former students, supervisors, etc. In this chapter, the aim is to discuss the nuances of networks and networking, highlight many of the reasons networking is important in progressing your career, examine how women network differently than their male counterparts, and offer tips for building networks and participating in networking events. Throughout and at the end of this chapter, you will find references and suggested resources for women in science and engineering that cover a broad range of skills that will make you effective at what you do. Networking is one of the most important skills that you will need in your career—whatever your position or responsibilities.
