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 to spur enjoyment, intrigue, conversation, and maybe even a little inspiration. 

Next book: Everything I Never Told You, by Celeste Ng

Next meeting: Thursday, June 8th, 7:00pm

Next location: 1200 18th Street NW, Suite 700 WDC 20036 + remote option!

Thank you to all of those who joined the headier than expected conversation about The Faraway Nearby.  We're going to come back up for air with a page-turning murder mystery.  Find out how murder and communication mix!  

We're always excited to welcome folks back and see more new faces.
