Coworker Coffee

Cornell Coworker Coffee; red coffee mug with athletic letter "C"

Get introduced to a random Cornell employee every month for a brief virtual chat!

What is it?

Cornell CoworkerCoffee is a fun new way to connect with other employees.

How does it work?

  • If you sign up for Coworker Coffee, you will be randomly matched with a new Cornell colleague once every month.
  • Then it's up to the two of you to set up a time to meet for a "virtual coffee."
  • CoworkerCoffee will provide you with some fun icebreaker questions you can use to get started.
  • “Virtual Coffee” typically lasts about 15-30 minutes.

Why sign up?

  • Learn about areas of the university beyond your department/unit.
  • Make new friends and grow your network.
  • Discover new connections and opportunities.
  • It's fun!

A few details:

  • If you need to take a month off, you can just skip scheduling a meeting with your match for the month and start again with your new match the following month.
  • You can opt-out at any time.
  • It's up to all Cornell employees to create and maintain a respectful workplace. Remember our core values and make each connection an opportunity to exercise our Big Red spirit of equity & inclusion!
