Hard Working Event Wednesday, June 24

Has the economy got you thinking that it’s time to create your own business? Why not tackle the global financial crisis head-on and become an entrepreneur? If you want to know more about where to start and what resources are available, this event is for you. Come to our community-building conversation hosted by the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum and WBEZ business and economy reporter Adriene Hill. We’ll talk with experts about how and where fledgling businesses can get help and what the federal stimulus plan means for aspiring entrepreneurs.

When: Wednesday, June 24

Coffee House: 3-3:30 p.m.

Conversation: 3:30-5 p.m.: Browse resource tables and network

Where: Jane Addams Hull-House Museum Residents’ Dining Hall 800 S. Halsted Chicago, IL.

Hard Working is an interactive series from WBEZ about jobs and joblessness. Using the radio, the Internet, and face-to-face conversations, WBEZ will start and encourage conversations about work and unemployment. WBEZ will follow job seekers through the ins and outs of the job hunt, find out who’s hiring and who’s firing, and talk about what “work” means to you and to people around the region.
