    What is the Multi-Chamber Collaboration?

    We have joined forces with our neighboring Chambers to combine our vibrant and diverse Women in Business Groups and expand our networks across 5 communities. 

    The four groups who will be participating throughout the year are:
    • OPRF Chamber of Commerce
    • Berwyn Development Corporation - Chamber Services Division
    • Forest Park Chamber of Commerce
    • Maywood Chamber of Commerce
    Special this month: lunch option!  Order a lunch from our concurrent Takeout Stakeout event at Khyber Pass and pick it up at 11:30 am to enjoy during our gathering!  Please add a comment in your order to denote the special 11:30 am pickup, as the rest of the lunches will be prepared for 12:30 pm.  

    February Discussion Topic

    Who has been struck in the last year by how many of the conversations, milestones and activism around black culture in our country are the same as they were 20 years ago? 50 years ago! One hundred years ago!

    In addressing this history, and in honor of Black History Month, join this month's host (the OPRF Chamber of Commerce) in a candid discussion about how we can refocus and change the conversation now for a new future!

    Join us for a fabulous lunch-time program with radio host Doris Davenport in conversation with Lynn Allen, founder of Tri-Star Gymnastics and multi-cultural specialist. These two amazing women will talk about how our communities have changed over the past few decades, what it's like to start a black-owned business and their vision for the future. This will set the stage for us to use break-out rooms (if time allows) for more intimate discussions on how we can change what our future looks like.

    Added bonus! There will be a special African Drum performance from Kuumba Kids.

    We will start our gathering with our regular guests from Riveredge Hospital with their Mindful Ten segment - nourish your soul and feel the LOVE of the group before we dive into the heart of the discussion.
