The WBN was pleased to hear from Angela Ingo, interior designer, at our August luncheon. Ingo presented useful information on the topic of Decorating Your Workspace – On a Budget! In fact, much of Ingo’s presentation included how to rework items we already have in our homes to create a cozy workspace. Ingo presented details examples and photographic representations to clearly explain how to easily convert a dull, disorganized workspace into a comfortable, personalized space. Her well-constructed, lively presentation emphasized including four specific atmosphere-creating items to include into any workspace:
- A personal item (i.e., a meaningful photo in a frame).
- A natural element (i.e., real or silk plant).
- Lighting (i.e., an additional table or floor lamp).
- Texture (add fabric to create warmth in a sterile office environment (i.e., throw pillows or wicker baskets)).

Raymond Christy, Utah Transit Authority Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Officer, also addressed the WBN regarding free money available to disadvantaged women- or minority-owned businesses. For more information, contact Mr. Christy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next luncheon will be held September 10 at 11:30AM and will be a “Nothing but Networking” event. Location is TBA.
