KEEPING YOU CONNECTED: Our Community Responds (Virtually) … A Series of Supportive Programs in April
Dear Community of The Connective, the social enterprise of O’Connor Connective
When asked what they could do to help women in business during this time, our preferred providers stepped up big time. In less than 24 hours, they created a series of discussions and workshops that we hope will help in some small way.
Here are the April events, so far, that are available for members and their guests:
- A Q&A session/panel on what the stimulus package means for our small businesses, facilitated by Kelly Runge, WIPFLI and Laurie Olsen, Johnson Financial Services. (April 1, 9 a.m.) – Register HERE
