Our vision is
Gender Equity for Women of All Colors
At all levels. Everywhere.
We are an organization of Chicago’s most influential women leaders. Our purpose is to empower women to lead.
The Chicago Network recognizes that often, women are left behind when it comes to matters of gender inclusion and equity. We believe that it is critical that we all be more intentional about including all women, more specifically, women of all colors.
