By: Net at Work Team
As we strive to find silver linings in the struggles the world has faced these past 2 years, we cannot help but consider how quickly time will pass us by if we continue to have good intentions, with no action. Action. Our mantra for 2022.
This quarter at Net at Work, we:
Celebrated Black History Month and launched the first ever Black Business Patron Challenge (BBPC). This challenge gave us all an opportunity to take local, direct action and truly spend our dollars with intention.

Each won a donation to a Black founded or focused charity of their choice in the amount of $250 and $175, respectively.
