HARTFORD, CT, October 20, 2014: More than 100 women gathered on the evening of October 9 to celebrate Pullman & Comley’s 2014 Networking Tea in the atrium café of the Hartford Public Library. Now in its fourth year in Hartford, the annual event hosted by Pullman & Comley’s Women’s Leadership Initiative provides an opportunity for women professionals to network while also supporting the work of a local nonprofit organization.
