What’s Admingling?

Networking for Admins and Workplace Operators in Washington, DC

Powered by collective intelligence, OfficeNinjas’ Admingling events provide admin pros and workplace operators with the time, space, and inspiration to grow their networks and level up their careers. Interesting venues, unexpected discussion topics, and delicious food and drinks are all part of Admingling’s secret sauce, but Ninjas are the key ingredient.

Want to make connections, discuss challenges, and brainstorm new ideas with a gang that gets it? Sign up for event updates today.

This Quarter’s Theme: The Art of Influence

What do you want others to see and feel when you interact with them? From emails to presentations, every workplace communication touchpoint is an opportunity to showcase your unique leadership skills.

We'll discuss core communication techniques for managing people and power dynamics, motivating colleagues, and inspiring change.

Register Here, Ninja

Unlike our larger events, Adminglings are meant to be intimate in size. We cap the guest list to ensure everyone has the opportunity to speak up and be heard. Reserve your ticket before we sell out!

Need to convince your boss? Use this handy email template.

IMPORTANT! This event is exclusively for career admins (office managers, executive assistants, and operations pros). Each registration will be verified, and all non-admin signups will be automatically refunded.

Admingling was so much fun! It was wrapped up in a nice little package … the food, laughter, networking and open forum — all covered in two short hours. I went in knowing no-one and came out feeling like I had known these Ninjas forever. It’s nice to know what’s going on outside the four walls we’re in everyday. Connecting with other admins is priceless in so many ways!

Executive Assistant

So excited to be a part of this group of phenomenal Office Ninjas supporting each other!! It’s a tremendous resource (and a lot of fun) for any executive assistant, office manager, or admin. Thanks for creating this group and making us admins — who often feel alone or on an island — feel valued and supported.

Admingling Tips

Maximize your Admingling experience with these simple tips

1. Don’t forget to put the “mingling” in Admingling! Introduce yourself, swap business cards, and interact with each person in the room. You’re there to connect with other Ninjas, so be bold! The more you put into networking, the more you’ll get out of it.

2. Your fellow Ninjas are your best resources. Curious about another industry? Want to know what it’s like to work at a startup? Got a favorite app or vendor that’s completely changed your work life? Speak up, ask questions, and trade tips.

3. Cash in on peer-to-peer facetime. So many Ninjas work in a department of one, making peer support hard to find. Admingling is your chance to open up and share your questions, ideas, or concerns. You’ll gain new perspectives through the collective power of the group.

Developing Habits and Crushing Goals

After a quick tutorial on how to pronounce Le Pain Quotidien, DC Ninjas settled into the intimate event space for a super productive session on habit hacking. Co-hosts Ali Berger and Kristin Sgroi kept the conversation flowing while attendees shared stories, swapped tips, and strategized for the future. A huge thanks to both Le Pain Quotidien and Upside Business Travel for making such a great evening possible! Check out the photo album!

Cracking Company Culture

Surrounded by art in Dacha’s amazing loft and gallery space, Ninjas weighed people-driven versus process-driven culture, offered suggestions about fun internal committees, and discussed the effects of an office lip-sync battle—all while enjoying wine, charcuterie, and beet fries.

Talking Capitol Biz & Admin Life

DC Ninjas got to share their successes and tackle each other’s challenges at the city’s inaugural Admingling. After a bit of icebreaking bingo and savory snacks, the Ninjas got down to reaping the benefits of picking each other’s brains and the business of planning valuable topics to cover at future events. Browse through our photo album.


Do I have to be an Office Ninja to attend?

Yes! We designed Admingling specifically for Office Ninjas (e.g. executive assistants, office managers, admins). If you don’t fall into any of those categories, sign up for our newsletter or consider sponsoring an event.

Will I meet other people in the same role and industry as me?

Admingling events connect you to administrative professionals across all industries and levels of experience. You’re bound to have things in common with other guests, but our events are known for their diversity.

What are the costs?

Each city’s inaugural event is free. Subsequent Admingling events will have a small admission fee to help cover basic event expenses including insurance, food, and printouts.

What's the refund policy?

Unfortunately, we're unable to offer refunds for high-demand events like Admingling. We promise it will be the highlight of your week!

I’d like to bring my whole office crew. Can I sign up as a group?

Admingling is the perfect after-hours event for you and your Ninja squad. Each member of your party must sign up separately (and be quick — we have a first-come, first-serve policy).

What’s the dress code?

There is no dress code. Many Ninjas come straight from work, and tend to be dressed work-casual as a result. Just make sure you're comfortable!

How often do Admingling events happen?

Admingling is held on a quarterly basis in established cities. Volunteer Event Organizers make these events possible and help us scout out new territories for Admingling. Want to join the team? Learn more, and apply here.

How can I volunteer?

We’re so happy you asked! Volunteers are essential; they make each event unique by bringing local perspective to the planning process. If you’re interested in being a volunteer, please complete this form.

I’d like to sponsor Admingling! How do I sign up?
