2020 - 21 Programming

We are always working hard to developing fantastic programming for the Net Impact Chicago (NIC) community that is a mixture of professional learning, networking, and volunteer opportunities. We look forward to meeting with and getting to know many of you at the year's events.  We look forward to hearing from you with additional ideas.


We are observing public health protocols and suspending in-person Net Impact Chicago (NIC) events for now. Our blog may list other/3rd party community events of interest.  We do plan virtual events.

Please stay tuned here or via our social media channels for more info going forward.  

Thank you for your support and best wishes to our community to stay safe and healthy!

    Among the millions of people in the United States who have been teleworking or furloughed for the past few months, many are being asked to return to work in the upcoming months. As Chicago and other national cities beginning to open up, the danger of contracting COVID-19 still present.

    If you are an employer, do you want to know how you can take an empathetic approach to making the workplace safer? As an employee, do you want to know what some best practices might be to bring up to your company? Join Slalom’s Sapna Mulchandani and Civil Agent’s Ivy Tzur for a free 1 hour webinar and Q&A over the lunch hour to learn how leading companies are going back to work with the focus on safety and employee and learn what other tools exist out there to ensure safety and health.

    Please register at our eventbrite so we can get a headcount of how many people to expect! A virtual invite will be sent out to those who register. This event will be hosted either via Zoom or FreeConferenceCall.com, to be determined.

    Hope to see you there!
