Join us at Google for the last Connect Mixer of the year! Enjoy stimulating networking and a sumptuous array of appetizers and beverages at one of the coolest offices in Los Angeles.

For the presentation this year, Nadine Farid Johnson and James Hawkins will provide an overview of the community involvement activities and corporate giving initiatives at Google. Since Google joined the Venice community, Googlers have been involved with and supported local education and non-profit organizations. Nadine and James will highlight some of what Googlers have been working on in the Venice area and beyond, as well as the corporate guidelines for providing community support. If time permits, they will walk you through the grant process and eligibility criteria for receiving support form Google.

Please join us! This event is free and is open to members only.
Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. It's really the people that make Google the kind of company it is. They hire people who are smart and determined, and they favor ability over experience. Although Googlers share common goals and visions for the company, they hail from all walks of life and speak dozens of languages, reflecting the global audience that we serve. And when not at work, Googlers pursue interests ranging from cycling to beekeeping, from frisbee to foxtrot.
