Upcoming Event: YWTF Chicago


The Younger Women’s Task Force (YWTF) is committed to improving the lives of Chicago women in their 20s and 30s through collaboration, education, and leadership. Our chapter plans and participates in activities that explore topics our members view as positively impacting their lives and the lives of Chicago women, girls, and their allies.

The 2011 YWTF Campaign focuses on career coaching for young professionals.

Over the next six  months, YWTF will hold various workshops and events, the first Wednesday of every month, featuring female leaders of prominent Chicago organizations who will provide tools and advice to assist in plotting future goals. Such topics may include: negotiating, dressing for success, life/work balance, etc.
