HBK's ERG Strive was excited to launch its biggest in-person and virtual event this year with a panel discussion to celebrate Women's History Month and International Women's Day. Strive was thrilled to have Najwa Abouhassan from ComEd, Bianca Camarena from People's Gas, and Somali Tomczak from Nicor Gas as the three panelists. Strive's current Vice Chair and Founder, Susie Othman, moderated the panel discussion.
The night was a wonderful opportunity for our in-person participants to gather at our Chicago Carroll office location, where they enjoyed great food and networked with one another. Virtual guests also joined in for opening remarks from board member Angie Magnuson and HBK President Eric Bergstrom. Throughout the panel discussion, we heard each panelist's incredible journey to where they are now, their challenges and triumphs in their career and life, and their advice to fellow women and allies on how to continue to impact the future and bring more seats to the table.
