TWC is building partnerships with local and national employee resource groups to assist in providing social experiences for their members. Our partners have the unique opportunity to access events where employees are able to socialize with co-workers and other members of the LGBTQ community, while all of the logistical work required in planning and executing the events is left to TWC.
How does it work?
We ask that each corporate partner assign a point person to work with TWC HQ to select experiences they think would be most beneficial for their employees. Four times per year, TWC will have specific opportunities for employee resource groups to join social programming and encourage their members to attend. These experiences include cultural, sports, and travel and are outlined in the calendar below. We'll work with each partner individually to grant them access to those events and create more meaningful programming for their employees.
Each year TWC will have four primary events that have a specific employee resource group component built in. Those groups can gain early access to high demand events that typically sell out in a few hours or a few days. We'll also hold a certain number of seats for your group while ensuring that all employees are sitting together. If you'd like to have one point person purchasing tickets and then distributing them at a pre-party nearby, we can do that. Want your employees to be able to buy tickets themselves but sit with other employees? We can make that happen as well.
The Welcoming Committee is heading to one of the holiday's most iconic experiences: The Nutcracker. ERGs are invited to join The Welcoming Committee to experience this classic event while meeting a delightful group of new friends and other employee resource group members from across the city.
Red Moon Cabaret
Each year Redmoon Theater brings together 1,000 people and puts on a spectacle performances designed to "engineer wonder" and "promote community and creativity" through an eclectic mix of performances by aerialists, drummers, a rock-n-roll band, DJ, video wall, and even puppets.
Chicago Cubs game
Our annual outing to Wrigley Field gives the LGBTQ community the opportunity to experience the ball park in a whole new way. With over 70 TWC members having joined us last June, we're already excited to see what 2016 has in store. And before the first pitch is even thrown, we'll be sure to head to a nearby spot to grab a drink and mingle with other TWC members until we head to the stands!
Museum After Hours
With partners like the Adler Planetarium and Art Institute of Chicago, The Welcoming Committee provides opportunities to learn more about Chicago's cultural scene. Whether exploring the galaxy while sipping on cocktails or discovering new contemporary art during one of the Art Institute's after hours events, TWC provides a great opportunity for your employees to discover what's happening in their city.
