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, we will honor these women at an event where they will share their experience with Girls Inc. of Chicago girls, friends, and supporters of Girls Inc.
