OP.LYNX-Women of OP

OP.LYNX, The Women’s Network of Out Professionals, is a community-building endeavor. OP.LYNX is a reflection of interests expressed to us by the lesbian business community in the NYC-Metro area. We foster professional growth for individuals by ‘lynking’ them with other like-minded business professionals and groups at informative and inspiring panel discussions, networking mixers and special events.
