WE2 – “The Circle” Movie Night

The IAC Women for Energy Efficiency Network (WE2) is hosting a virtual viewing party of “The Circle” based on the book of the same name by David Eggers. All IAC students, staff, alumni, and other connections are welcome to attend! It is not mandatory to read the book prior to attending this event and this would be a great way to decide if you’d like to read the book! We will be discussing both the book and the movie during our Book Club event (and likewise, you do not have to watch the movie to attend Book Club).

This year we’ll be trying something a little different so you do not need have any video streaming services to join us for Movie Night! We will be providing the movie through our Zoom meeting and will also leave the chat open so everyone can ‘chat’ during the movie! This is a more informal event where mentors and mentees can meet others within the Mentorship Program and watch a fun movie together!

Post-Movie Night
We had some great conversation going at our movie night event! Some of these discussion points included:
– Interview experience at a variety of companies
– Productivity and its relation to work environment
– Leadership in small companies vs. larger companies
– Health care in other countries
– Founders / CEOs in larger companies and their interactions with workers
– Futuristic technology in today’s world
– Work-life balance and how mental health is intertwined
– Employer-employee relationships
