This was a great way to meet graduate students I wouldn't have otherwise met and I enjoyed being able to advise.

FEEDBACK FROM GUIL MATCH-MAKING PROGRAMS
This is a unique and a great effort. It is encouraging to see other accomplished women as well.
The Bay Area is rich with talented women. You meet them in your circles everyday. At the Guild, I loved meeting new women who offered a slightly different perspective and opened up new doors.
Again, this program was brilliant. I'd love to be involved in an extended version and be introduced to 8 or 12 or 16 others!
Great idea. Your matching algorithm clearly works.
