A Message from Our President

To Our WICT Greater Chicago Community:

I wanted to take a moment to update everyone on the steps our chapter has taken in the wake of COVID-19.

The health and safety of our membership during these unprecedented times remain at the forefront of our focus. In the upcoming weeks, we will restructure our programming slate – shifting our resources toward online learning and engagement opportunities.

In partnership with WICT Global and other WICT Chapters, we’ve made these webinars accessible to other WICT chapters across the country and to non-members alike. Solidarity with our WICT peers and the industry at-large allows us all to feel connected, and we’re excited to announce some additional online events soon.

Once we’re able to start meeting in small groups, we’ll roll out some in-person events and enjoy each other’s company once again. You can find all the latest information on our Get Involved Page

While our year has been dramatically impacted, our dedication to WICT Touchstones remains unchanged. We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing everyone again soon!

With Gratitude,

Lisa Thomas

President, WICT Greater Chicago
