• 24th Annual Spring Luncheon

    Please join us Thursday, May 3, 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton, Chicago. Funds raised will support of the various projects of the Woman's Board, including the 2018 Principal Project, the Rush Education and Career Hub, or REACH, an innovative education and workforce development program.  In the next decade, the need for health care professionals will grow substantially, but especially in low-income communities, low numbers of students qualify to gain advanced skills and access to those careers.  Through mentorship, job shadowing and internship programming, REACH positions high school and college students in Chicago's diverse West Side communities for job success in the health care industry.   

    Tables are selling quickly, please reserve yours today!
