It was truly inspiring to witness the fresh faces of students, Class of 2024, during ComEd's Construct Company Overview. We were honored to showcase all things HBK alongside other participating companies. We're excited to see this round of students grow and dive into the industry.
Backed by data and lived experience, Shayla Atkins empowered and equipped members of WEN to disrupt the status quo by leveraging their authenticity as their unique competitive advantage.

Thank you to the WEN Chicago Chapter for putting together a motivational evening.
We were excited to kick off another great season with the new 2024 CONSTRUCT cohort.

We are grateful to Quanta for presenting the opportunity to partner with Seramount! Our in-person and virtual attendees were honored to witness Seramount's Global DEI Strategy Conference, which shared best practices regarding global DEI, strategies used by DEI councils and ERGs, and the latest results from the Global Inclusion Index.
With students returning with a fresh mindset from winter break, it was great to join them alongside NFTE to dive back into their business plans as young entrepreneurs. For this session, our nationwide volunteers dove into marketing and helped coach students to create a marketing plan for their business.
Two of our Woodlands volunteers put in hard work with Sleep in Heavenly Peace to load beds, mattresses, and bedding to be delivered across the county. Their efforts will help children in need find peace and comfort in a warm bed.
We enjoyed learning more about the Women's Energy Network - Chicago Chapter and its work to increase the presence of women in the energy industry, foster networking relationships, and develop leadership competencies and industry insight for all members as they kick-start their 2024 season.
