At a women’s networking event, ESD’s Julie DeNardis Lardenoit met another woman from United who also worked at Willis Tower. Together, they decided to create Women of Willis, a network supporting women at Willis Tower and to create a community within the building.
“Sometimes network events can be daunting,” DeNardis Lardenoit explained. “This network of women, the intent is that you can meet for coffee, you can meet for lunch or you can meet for drinks after work.”
Women can share stories, concerns – and challenges. DeNardis Lardenoit sees a great opportunity to give guidance to younger people and to add mentors.
