Far too often, the stories of every day women who do extraordinary things are left untold. Girls Inc. Of Chicago is changing that narrative. Through SheShines our newly created leadership recognition award, we want to shine a bright light on Chicago’s strong, smart, and bold female leaders.

From March 8 through May 31, we will be accepting nominations that acknowledge women who work hard to make Chicago a better place and serve as inspiration for young girls.

The winners, who will be announced in June 2019, will be acknowledged in person at our Annual Luncheon in October and will be featured as panelists at our leadership summit in March 2020.

Currently, our nomination period for She Shines as closed. Please check back periodically to see who our winners are. We will be posting winners on this site as well as our social media sites in June 2019. Winners will be acknowledged in person at our Annual Luncheon in October and will be featured as panelists at our leadership summit in March 2020.
