The Working Lunch

May 14, 2020

11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
The Palmer House, 17 E. Monroe St., Chicago

Join us for our much-anticipated annual luncheon. You and 1,000 of your closest friends will spend the afternoon networking, celebrating success, and learning how to continue to move equity forward.

Like you, we have been diligently monitoring the situation around COVID-19, the novel coronavirus. The health and safety of our guests, our team, and the hotel staff that help us run the event, is and will continue to be our top priority. As of today, we are exploring virtual options for The Working Lunch, scheduled for May 14th. As we make decisions about how to proceed, we will post updates here.

Stronger Together:

Protecting Our Legacy. Shaping Our Future.

Women have made considerable advances in recent years but still face inequities that often prevent them from reaching their full potential. Join Women Employed for an inter-generational conversation on how we protect our legacy, build our power, expand our influence, and intentionally transfer our seats to the next generation to shape an equitable future together.
