PWCC: June Networking Luncheon - 51% - Why It Makes Sense to Invest in Women and Girls

  • Union League Club 65 West Jackson Boulevard Chicago, IL, 60604 United States (map)

Gender bias and gender-based violence is a global issue that stands in the way of opportunity and equity for women and girls. Women make up more than half of Illinois’ population, but biases remain embedded in the structures in which we all work, pray, play, and live.  How can we change this?  What can we do to provide more opportunities for women and girls to succeed?

Join K. Sujata, the President and CEO of Chicago Foundation for Women (CFW), for a compelling presentation on why we must invest in women and girls. For over 30 years, the foundation has been committed to changing the narrative and the trajectory by building a stronger, safer metropolitan region for women and girls. Under Sujata’s leadership, CFW has experienced double-digit growth in the funding of nonprofit organizations in Chicago.
