Chicago Woman of the Year, 8th Annual
April 6, 2021 – 5:30pm
Virtual – Zoom
As the world’s first service club, we realized a few years back that we were in a good position to honor people for their service to our community. In honoring women, we underscore that Rotary has been strengthened immeasurably by women for many years.
Every year we focus on a theme. This year it is “Rotary Opens Opportunities.” Opening Opportunities could not be a more appropriate description of what our three accomplished honorees have been doing on behalf of youth and women for the greater part of their careers.
This will be a special and inspiring evening for us, made even more so by your presence. Please join us for our 8th Chicago Woman of the Year – via Zoom this year – and so more broad-reaching than ever.
Founder and Board President, Ignition Community Glass
Principal and Co-Founder, Capital Strategies Investment Group
Founder and President Emeritus, Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC)
There is no charge to attend this year’s virtual Woman of the Year Award Ceremony, however, during the registration process, guests may make a monetary contribution in honor of a registrant, one of the Woman of the Year honorees or to support Rotary/One’s many service projects.
