Join 1871, in collaboration with The Garage Group, for an in-person and virtual community-building event for a panel discussion with battle-tested leaders on how they are navigating the current market turbulence and increased headwinds within themselves, their teams, and their companies. If you join in Chicago, you’ll find opportunities to collaborate and network with corporate leaders, startup founders, investors, and professional peers from different backgrounds for courage, inspiration, and ideas as you’re building your company and career in the midst of uncertainty. Courageous Minds Only, started by The Garage Group, is a Global Community whose mission is to build a network of corporate leaders and inspire them to find new, creative solutions for their brands. Find the courage you need to take the next step in your career. Remember, all it takes is a community, connections, and some courageous inspiration!
