Chicago’s International Women Associates are organizing a Finnish Gala that will take place on May 5, 2017 at Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago. The event is part of the many Suomi Finland 100 celebrations that Finns are having all over the world for the 100 years of independence.
The organizers, International Women Associates, are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting cross-cultural exchange, global understanding and advocating for universal human rights, especially for women and girls. The honorary guest speaker at the event will be Ambassador Manu Virtamo, Consul General of Finland in New York.
NOOA Global will both sponsor the gala and have a representation there. CEO Tom Grönstrand comments that he is excited to celebrate the centenary of Finland’s independence also in the company’s other home, Chicago. NOOA Global expanded its operations from Finland to Chicago in Autumn 2016 and has been satisfied with the buzzing city and with its many business opportunities.
“We were glad to see that IWA is organizing such a grand Suomi Finland 100 event. Finland is the forerunner in Women’s rights, so IWA will be a great organizer for bringing this important message forward. Hopefully we will see many other companies in this event as well!”
