Our mission is to connect and empower our Chicago Chapter women by providing educational and social networking events while also giving back to our community.  We are a sisterhood of women who bring value to each other.

NAPW NORTH REGION KEY CITIES:  Chicago - Columbus - Detroit - Minneapolis  - Lexington, KY - Indianapolis
NAPW is an excellent way for like-minded professional women to network and support each other's goals.  We have over 700 amazing women in the Chapter and monthly meetings are always posted in the Upcoming Meeting list below.  Click the "Join" button to stay updated on all of our chapter events & activities.

NAPW Chicago Chapter Charitable Giving:  As stated in our Mission Statement, we are a chapter who believes in "giving back to our community."  In 2013 we were the winner of the NAPW Charity Award and since the creation of our *Networking for a Cause* events we have raised over $8000 for local charities.  Our goal for 2014 is to exceed $10,000 in charitable giving.
