As we are approaching the end of September and welcoming the Fall season, our Chicago Creative Women’s Co. celebrated the late goodbye to Summer at our last Cocktails & Conversations event of the year. We also bundle another celebration into this event at The Hampton Social.
A few weeks ago, I (Ari) entered Creative Women’s Co. idea to RedEye Big Idea Awards 2016 submission. Just one day before the submission date ended. To my surprise, the next few days after that I received an email that the idea is selected as one of the finalists in community development & civic involvement category. You can imagine how excited, nervous and really really really happy because this can be our big opportunity to share what this group is about. To help local creative women entrepreneurs, to grow, learn, to network confidently and most importantly helping us all create a collaborative community. You can read the full recap here.
We had a great time networking casually at the event, making new connections and hearing what everyone thoughts on what their idea of boundaries between themselves and their mobile phones.
