PARTNER WITH US

The Women in the Workplace Series is to inspire all women and moms, highlight their stories and experiences in the workforce, and spotlight March of Dimes’ steadfast commitment to fighting for a more equitable future for all.

This fall, March of Dimes Illinois will brings together community thought leaders to help equip women and moms in becoming the best advocates in dealing with some of today’s biggest challenges. 

Women in the Workplace ignites conversations and supports issues that matter most to our community.  It unites people with diverse backgrounds to create change and share their experiences.

Join us in celebrating these resilient women and mothers through a multi-week effort across social media and then around the meeting table, to raise awareness of how Women in the Workplace are changing the course of history.
