For the past 35 years, Chicago Foundation for Women has played a unique role as a grantmaker, advocate, thought leader, and organizer for change. Plan to attend CFW’s free #TalkItOut Series, as we take a fresh look at some of the most pressing issues facing women, girls, trans, and gender non-binary people in Chicagoland today. Join us in exploring bold avenues for making progress in addressing those challenges.


This spring, CFW will host a 3-part #TalkItOut Speaker Series of free and open to the public events. Please save the date(s) where available, and stay tuned for more details.
