Capitalize on Illinois was on May 2nd, 2024 – The Future of Work: Building Technology, Culture and Community in a Hybrid World. It was a great event showcasing our interns, as well as a topic which is still front of mind.  It was a jam-packed morning of content, conversations, and connections. We want to thank each of our speakers: Yemi Akisanya, for opening and facilitating the event (and getting us on our feet at times!), Joe Viola and Lily Xu, for giving Morningstar’s perspective on hybrid work, Amanda Hogan for kicking off a great icebreaker (Who do YOU trust?!), Kara Alfonso for sharing the Pfizer experience with our interns, and Monteè Ellis, Mykola Mazurak and Kiana Fisher for wowing us with their presentation! Even more: Lena DeLaet for sharing Summerfest Tech and kicking off our fireside chat, Cylk Jackson, for being the moderator of the fireside chat between ChaChi Gallo and Jonah Turner, and Sandee Kastrul for continuing to inspire in her vision of work speech.
