She doled out great advice that can be used by both veterans in the communication industry and neophytes in the space.
1. Your Network is important nurture it.
2. Be nice to EVERYone. You never know where someone will end up.
3. Have a great mentor.

It isn’t enough to have opportunity. You have to earn them, and being prepared it essential to your success. Her words of wisdom resonated with this crowd of go-getters who are ready to take Chicago to the next level.

The organization was created in the summer of 2011 by Lauren Wesley Wilson. It quickly grew from lunches where women could connect to a formal group in DC, New York and now Chicago.

I am so proud to be apart of this organization and share my talent and network with women who love Public Relations and Communications just like I do. I can’t wait to see what we bring to the city next.
