WHOI's Your Buddy?
Are you a new WHOI employee wanting to feel part of a community - whether it’s work, life style, and/or the town’s?
Our WHOI’s Your Buddy Program offers you the opportunity to connect with a WHOI employee who has been here for a bit and can be a resource for questions— work or community related.
The goal is for you to access a holistic WHOI experience, make connections, meet other new employees, and feel supported!
Please feel free to contact anyone on the Buddy Board below and get connected!
