Community is key.
At Parachute, we've built a community around careers, and we'd love for you to be a part of it too. We'll share information on events and resources that Parachute loves and we think you'll love too.
Join Parachute Coaching's Book Club
We don't always talk about careers and leadership! Sometimes we just like to read. For fun. With friends. And wine. Join us for the Parachute Book Club. It's totally free. Don't forget to RSVP.
Books are hand-picked with the hope of spurring enjoyment, intrigue, conversation, and maybe even a little inspiration.
Next book: The Faraway Nearby, by Rebecca Solnit
Next meeting: Thursday, April 6th, 7:00pm
Next location: 1200 18th Street NW, Suite 700 WDC 20036 + remote option!
