Be thankful for the Chamberís November events

By Justin Tinder / Lifestyle / November 3, 2020

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber is known for connecting the business community with high-level speakers, timely topic discussions and networking opportunities.

Since the onset of COVID-19, we’ve had to get creative about how we continue to offer this type of programming while letting you meet new people.

Check out what we have planned for November and make arrangements to attend. Learn more about each event by using the links provided.

MegaLunch, Nov 4 at 11:30 am. Here is your chance to build your network and engage in informative dialogue. MegaLunch is our online speed networking event where you have 90 seconds to pitch your products or services to other professionals from the comfort of your home or office.

We’ll be using Zoom breakout rooms and a computerized rotation schedule, so you’ll still get to meet many new prospects while showing your promoting expertise during five rotations.

Enlighten, Nov, 6 at noon.  Motivational speaker Erin Engelke will provide tangible tips to beating the fatigue that comes with uncertainty and stress at home and in the workplace.

Enlighten virtual events are free and available to both chamber members and nonmembers.

Rise & Shine, Nov. 10 at 9 a.m.  Goodwill Industries President and CEO Jim Priest, whose humor, warmth and insights have made him an innovator in both for-profit and nonprofit sectors, will bring his message for participants.

Priest spent 34 years as a trial lawyer and has focused his skills and passions into a wide-reaching impact in the non-profit community. Priest will make the case why being positive might be more than just sappy sentiment, but a power for doing good in the world.

Elevate (rescheduled from October), Nov. 12 at 10:45 a.m. –OKC’s professional development conference delivers two keynote sessions, choice of three breakout sessions, access to a virtual expo featuring Chamber member companies, a custom attendee profile and personalized agenda, and live community engagement.

Creating a Culture of Inclusion Series, Nov. 16 at 3:30 p.m. At the November discussion, attendees will learn to reflect on how unconscious bias is rooted in our personal stories and how businesses can strategize to minimize the effects of those biases from attracting potential employees to the hiring process itself.

The keynote speaker of the event is Silvia Siqueira, a diversity and inclusion officer at Hilti North America. Siqueira has more than 20 years of experience working with new environments, inclusion challenges and different cultures.

The Creating a Culture of Inclusion series is presented by the Urban League of Oklahoma City, Inc. and the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. The series is a part of a partnership aimed at creating a stronger dialogue and engagement of the Oklahoma City business community around issues of social justice and anti-racism.

She will speak on economics, politics, culture, and the media during the address.
