  • "Croissants vs. Bagels" Book Launch & SoJust Closing Celebration (11 years!)

    You are invited! On Tuesday, September 12, we will gather to celebrate two major events: the close of Socializing for Justice after 11 years and the launch of "Croissants vs. Bagels: Strategic, Effective, and Inclusive Networking at Conferences" RSVP at http://www.croissantsvsbagels.eventbrite.com (there is no fee to attend, registering on Eventbrite ahead of time will speed up your check-in) These are both major milestones for Robbie Samuels, the founder of Socializing for Justice and the visionary behind this grassroots, cross-cultural, cross-issue progressive community and network in Boston. Over the last 11 years, SoJust has grown to over 3,100 members, hosted over 230 events, and facilitated countless connections. SoJust also was the inspiration that led Robbie to create Art of the Schmooze, his signature session about inclusive networking - and a key component to the friendly and welcoming culture everyone experiences at SoJust events. If you've been meaning to attend this session you have one more opportunity to do so: Art of the Schmooze will be offered on Tuesday, September 19 as part of the SoJust ProfDev Series. (https://www.meetup.com/sojust-tm/events/240010727/) This will be the final SoJust event. [If you'd like to read more about the decision to close SoJust and a bit of the history of how we got started, please read the email I shared announcing that Socializing for Justice is coming to a close this September (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BUK0T8O5cvFN8OFENjng0lyEuF78Mcp4J0m2lR14eaA/edit?usp=sharing).] For nearly a decade Robbie has been speaking about inclusive networking and he finally wrote a book about it! In late July, his book was released to great acclaim as a Kindle book, reaching #1 in 3 categories and remaining a bestseller ever since - receiving 10 endorsements from experts and business authors, plus over 160 reviews worldwide. On Tuesday, September 12 "Croissants vs. Bagels" will be available for the first time as a paperback, which includes a free audiobook. Please join us to celebrate Robbie Samuels reaching these milestones and meet all the people who have been supporting his work over the last 15 years he's been in Boston. That's right, you'll have a chance to practice your schmoozing skills while enjoying a tasty spread of food and cash bar. Since this is a book launch party, Robbie will, of course, be doing a reading, where he'll share some of the best networking tips and techniques in the book. He will also be doing a book signing (books will be available for sale at the venue). We will also have an opportunity for a few people to share their 2-minute "Because of SoJust..." story. Wondering what a book about "Croissants vs. Bagels" has to do with a group about Socializing for Justice? This Amazon review does a nice job explaining that. Learn more about this book (and get the Kindle version) at http://www.robbiesamuels.com/bookstore. __________________________________________________________________ ACCESSIBILITY: Must be 21+ to enter after 7PM.

Don’t forget to tweet about this event using #SoJust and #profdev! ____________________________________________________ Socializing for Justice - http://www.sojust.org SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly ProfDev Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which provides access to affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for movement building. With over 3000 members and 10+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue community in Boston (225+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice. YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
