Letter from the President - March 2012
Letter from Jennifer Holt, Greater Chicago Chapter President

  

March 2012

 

    

March is Women's History Month and the 2012 theme is Women's Education   - Women's Empowerment. While reading about the 2012 theme I realized how I've taken for granted those who came before me, making it possible for me to get an amazing education. In fact, as recently as the mid-1960s, girls were directed into occupational choices that were limited to four categories: secretarial, nursing, teaching, or motherhood. Luckily today, women have more opportunities at their fingertips, especially when they have access to education and trustworthy, competent role models. This month, I wanted to honor some amazing WICT role models: the Past Presidents of the WICT Greater Chicago Chapter. They have all been powerful innovators and architects of change that have allowed this chapter to grow to more than 500 members and win Chapter of the Year two times. I'm inspired by their successes and I've learned quite a bit about their tenacity, courage, and creativity.

 

Please check out our new Past Presidents page on the WICT Greater Chicago website. Read how our Past Presidents network, their thoughts about WICT and get inspired by their favorite quotes.   

 

The stories of women's achievements are integral to the fabric of our history. I hope you enjoy reading about the history of the WICT Greater Chicago Chapter.
