Scala Connects


Join Us for an Hour

Our Scala Connects series is designed as a forum for women to connect with like-minded professionals and get a break from their weekly routine. These free, 1-hour sessions over lunchtime, focus on specific topics and provide networking opportunities to help you learn and grow your career.

Join us on Friday, reflect over the weekend, and be ready to take action on Monday.
So grab your lunch, close the door, and take time for yourself.

Guest Speakers

Each session features leaders in their field, sharing knowledge and insights with you. Mentors from Scala programs and special guests create a unique series of lunch and learn sessions.


All Scala Connects sessions begin and end with interactive chat sessions for participants to meet and connect with each other.  You’ll be able to submit questions in advance or ask them during the session, making sure that our programming is relevant for you.
