In the toddlers’ game Memory, you upturn two cards at a time, making pairs. Match the bunny you saw two turns ago with the bunny you just flipped. It’s mind-numbing entertainment for children and their baby-sitters. It’s also the most useful skill you develop as an administrative assistant—the redesignated secretarial pool, where scads of young women start out and get stuck. But Washington for Women author Jacci Duncan, Women’s Information Network chairperson Traci Siegel, and public relations manager Bridget Serchak will declare how to “Put Your Career on the Fast Track” tonight. Kick off the navy blue pumps, remove the nose from the grindstone for a moment, and find out just how well your employer serves women and which networking groups can help you step up. At 7:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 3040 M St. NW. FREE. (202) 965-9880. (Ginger Eckert)
