Description

Chicago Women in Digital July OPEN Meetup

Heard of Women in Digital but unsure what it means to be a member? Attend this OPEN Meetup to learn what we are all about. This event is FREE to attend, and we do not hold open events often, so make sure to gather your squad, and connect with the empowering Members of WID. You will also get to meet your Chicago City Champion and Board!

This meetup's theme: Where is the Line?

In an era that is finally giving a voice to women, minorities, and LGBTQ, movements like #MeToo and groups like Women In Digital are empowering women, men, and everyone to share their stories. How do we define what is appropriate office behavior - and what is not?

This month we focus on empowering ourselves and others to tackle uncomfortable situations to find the best possible solution. Every story and situation is unique, and together with our collective experience we can all bring something to the table. We can Ask, Give, and Grow together by way of advice, common experience, a shoulder to lean on, or helping to find clarity in the blurred lines.

If you have any questions about this topic or attending the event, please reach out to Kim, our WID Membership Director, at kim@womenin.digital

Testimonial:

"I recently attended my first Women in Digital meet up and it was unlike any other 'networking' event. While every person in the room was there in a professional capacity, there was an undercurrent of shared values, shared struggles, and shared desire for change.

It was a powerful experience to see women band together to raise each other up in a way that only women can. I can't recommend joining Women in Digital enough. This is a professional community that feels like the home we never knew we needed, but have always been seeking." - Alaura Weaver, Copywriter + Content Strategist
