Members of Inforum, Michigan’s largest professional organization for women, invite women who are interested in professional networking and personal support to gather and be empowered virtually from 8am–9am on the third Thursday. This affinity group will engage virtually monthly and will connect in person 2-3 times a year.
The Mosaic Difference
The purpose of this affinity group is to leverage and strengthen the Inforum network by bringing together all hues of women of color, advocates, and allies to engage in courageous conversations that inspire personal and professional excellence and success. We encourage authentic relationships and desire to create a space for collaboration to accelerate strategic connections and professional and business growth for women of color. We don’t want time and proximity to be an issue; hence why a virtual meeting is an opportunity to engage Inforum members on the west side of Michigan, as well as the SE Michigan region.
