IWC Monthly Networking Session

December 17, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Please join us in a virtual networking session, moderated by our guest speaker, Rona Borre, CEO, Seed Talent, a premier Chicago-based cannabis staffing and education firm. Rona will share her insights into Illinois’ talent market. The hour-long session is fully focused on building connection, alignment, and community among IWC members. While it’s undoubtedly tough to create community while the world is virtual, this will be a strategic session that seeks to support authentic opportunities for professional growth. The session will include a post-event directory to promote continued connection.

Groups will rotate every 15 minutes to keep the networking flowing. Networkers should have their intros ready: Name, business, or specialty, or role and what business opportunities are you seeking.

Since joining the human capital industry nearly 25 years ago, Rona has become a nationally recognized leader in the talent space. She specializes in working closely within emerging and high-growth markets alongside both startup organizations and well-established enterprises to create end-to-end recruiting strategies that identify teams and leaders who drive innovation. Her firm Instant Alliance founded in 2001 continues to be a pioneer in the technology space.

As a long-standing leader in Chicago, Rona is actively involved with the Economic Club of Chicago, the Young Presidents Organization, and The Chicago Network. She has also been featured in Crain’s Chicago, CNBC, CNN, CBS 2 Chicago, and USA Today as an expert in talent markets and supporting new industry verticals.

She was recently honored as the Enterprising Woman of the Year by Enterprising Women Magazine and was named an Influential Woman in Business by The Business Ledger.

Rona founded Seed Talent to bring her decades of experience driving innovation through talent strategies to the ever-evolving cannabis industry.
