Networking brings together potential new members, employers, and referrals and connects them with current members in a casual environment set in local Andersonville hangouts. This month we are excited to partner with the LGBT Chamber of Commerce of Illinois to bring to you Kristina M. Wynne of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses as our Spotlight Professional. Each month the Chamber provides light bites and hosts a Spotlight Professional that offers something unique and dynamic to offer to the business community. Then open networking continues afterwards.
Spotlight Professional: Kristina M. Wynne, Outreach Director for Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses!
