Oak Park Works, a collaborative coworking space at 18 Lake St., has established a new lunchtime speaker series that invites local leaders and business owners from throughout the community to discuss matters of interest.

"This monthly event will provide a forum for the community to meet and hear local business owners, community leaders and influencers tell their stories and explain why Oak Park does — or in some cases, does not — work," Shiren Mathai, a founder of Oak Park Works, said in a press release.

The first speaker will be Rasheeda Graham-Washington, owner of L!VE Café, 163 S. Oak Park Ave.

"As entrepreneurs, business owners and citizens of the community, we need to learn and understand all sides of the issues to grow, come together, lift each other and, ultimately, make our community thrive," Mathai said.

The events will include a 30-minute lecture and 30-minute question-and-answer session.
