Chicago Chapter Leader of Room to Read

Why did you join the Rise Up Leadership Council?  

I wanted to expand my global network of people working in women and girls’ empowerment, especially education, meet the Rise Up leaders and travel to see the Rise Up philosophy in action, and finally make an impact by contributing my time, talent, and resources.

What is your favorite way to contribute to the Leadership Council?

I believe I can make an impact by expanding the footprint of Rise Up in Chicago and help to raise awareness and support here.

What has been your favorite Leadership Council experience?

I look forward to attending a Leadership Council event or breakfast in the near future.
