This program aims to inspire the next generation of women leaders through a two-day immersion program. Last year’s host companies included United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, Leo Burnett, Adler Planetarium and ABC7 Chicago. The year prior, host companies included Exelon, Ernst & Young, the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago. During these highly interactive company visits, participants receive an overview of the organization and industry, take a tour of the workplace, and discuss the skills, abilities and education necessary for their career path. Company employees of all levels provide their personal history of how they progressed to their position and/or fostered their career growth, explain what they do and how their role is important to the operations of the organization, and more. UIC female students of all majors (sophomores and juniors) are eligible.
The program takes place the week of May 9 or May 16, 2016. Application deadline: Mon, Jan 25. To apply and learn more, click here: http://www.thechicagonetwork.org/?page=Application
