New Friend

After arriving at the networking event and grabbing a drink, Sophia, the woman who organized the event, gets Avery's attention and motions for them to meet someone. Sophia introduces Avery to Auriel and mentions they're both involved in the diversity and inclusion space and that she thought they should talk. After talking for a bit, they agree they should find time to connect outside of the event. Avery opens Clay and asks Auriel for her email. Upon adding her email, Avery also adds an initial note to remind themself of how and where they met.

After taking down her information and continuing the conversation, Auriel mentions that she'll be going to Dallas to visit family and asks Avery if they knows anyone who lives there and is involved in D&I who might be interested in chatting with her while she's there. Nobody immediately comes to mind, but Avery pulls out Clay to search and see if they're forgetting anyone.

After searching in Clay, Avery learns that they in fact do have a former colleague who transitioned into consulting for corporate diversity and inclusion! Avery offers to make an intro and edits their initial note in Clay to remind themself to intro Auriel and Renita and sets a reminder to do so tomorrow morning.

As the night closes, Avery makes a final round to say goodbye to the people they had met. On their way home, they makes sure to open Clay and review the new contacts they had created that night and add them all to a new group titled "Sophia's Networking Event" to help organize these new relationships in their life.

Avery arrives home and feels energized by the day they just had. They reached-out to people they would have otherwise forgotten, connected with a former colleague, and met new people who they're excited to build relationships with. Clay was at the center of all these experiences and Avery feels great knowing these interactions, notes, and reminders all live in one secure place.
