About this event

Join us for our first in-person gathering of 2024 at NEWaukee’s brand new office, a cozy renovated house in Bay View that they’ve lovingly named “The Howie”. This will be one of the first public events at The Howie and we’re excited to hear from Angela Damiani about why they created this space for their team. We’ll open the discussion further with a few thought-provoking prompts, like:

“What elements of comfort and safety can we bring into our work environments?”

“How do we respect the boundaries between actual home life and workplace?”

“What does it mean to create safe spaces that are inclusive to diverse groups?

Snacks and beverages provided. 

We encourage you to bring a friend to this event - especially if they’re into re-imagining the future of workplace culture! 

Street parking available. 

Space is limited to 20 attendees.
