What we're about
Chicago Women Rising (Meetup) – Mission Statement
Do you want to make genuine, long-lasting friendships? Would you like to expand your social or emotional support system? Are you interested in networking with others who share your personal or professional interests?
At CHICAGO WOMEN RISING, we believe ALL women and woman-identifying individuals should have a safe and supportive space where they can be their most glowing, genuine and confident selves. We aim to build strong relationships among women by fostering a non-competitive and non-judgmental environment where interests, goals and passions can be shared with others openly.
Our ultimate goal is to stand with women of diverse backgrounds and experiences who feel held down by the stresses of everyday life—whether it be a job, school, family or social life challenge—and motivate them to RISE above it. We affirm that, with strong social and emotional support from fellow women, ALL women can feel empowered to achieve their goals and fully embrace all that their lives can offer.
To best engage all members, we offer larger events at bustling social spots as well as smaller events in quieter, casual locations. At the foundation of all events, however, is our organizers’ shared desire to learn more about our unique members, ensure everyone feels included, build personal professional comradery, and form meaningful connections and friendships.
We also offer the opportunity for our members to share their personal and professional stories on our Chicago Women Rising blog forum. Our hope is that each story shared will inspire members to submit their own stories; after all, no one has a story exactly like yours!
