She Shines Awards

She Shines Awards

Far too often, the stories of everyday women who do extraordinary things are left untold. Girls Inc. of Chicago is changing that narrative. Through She Shines, our signature leadership recognition program, we want to shine a bright light on Chicago’s strong, smart, and bold female leaders.

She Shines celebrates women making a difference in the lives of Chicago women and girls. In partnership with our Associate Board, we recognize these extraordinary women at a celebration during Women’s History Month.

Join us in spotlighting the stories of remarkable women who truly shine in our community.
