Far too often, the stories of everyday 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.

On March 31, 2021, we honored our inaugural She Shines cohort and announced our newest awardees during a virtual event during Women’s History Month with Girls Inc. of Chicago girls, friends, and supporters of Girls Inc.
