WWIMM and CIMMfest Present: Women Taking Care of Business

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Women Working in Mixed Media during the Chicago International Movies and Music Festival for a business panel on career strategies for women in the creative arts. This won’t be your mama’s knitting circle! We’ll be throwing back gin cocktails at Chicago Distilling and meeting some of Chicago’s most impressive women in film, radio, social media, music, and more.

Learn how these women rose to the top and tips for success in a career in media and the creative arts, from how to build and diversify your network, identifying new opportunities to increasing confidence and finding a mentor. After the panel, stick around to network and get down with Derby drinks.
