WLI Breakthrough Series | Waking the Sleeping Giant
Featuring the Women of The Old Post Office
Thursday, January 23, 2020
Join the ULI Chicago Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) on January 23rd for their next Breakthrough Series, celebrating the rehabilitation of The Old Post Office. Anna Margaret Barris (Illinois State Historic Preservation Office), Dijana Cuvalo (City of Chicago), Christine Lussow (Bear Construction), Emily Ramsey (MacRostie Historic Advisors), and Sheryl Schulze (Gensler) will discuss the challenges, successes and surprises they encountered in bringing the long-vacant Old Post Office back to life. Mariah DiGrino (DLA Piper) will facilitate what promises to be an exciting “behind the scenes” discussion of the project as well as the importance of collaboration and allyship.
To be part of the solution, you must be part of the conversation – everybody is welcome to attend!
