Striving to make Chicago the leading tech ecosystem for women




Women Influence Chicago Initiative, powered by ITA, operates as an umbrella organization to cultivate women leaders, connect the community and increase female leadership at growth and enterprise tech companies. Through pre-workforce and in-workforce education for both men and women, the initiative aims to catapult women into roles of influence as a member of the C-Suite, as Presidents/CEOs and into Public Advisory Board positions.


The following three key areas will be the focus of the Women Influence Chicago Initiative:

  • Pre-Workforce: enabling and supporting getting more women into technology through mentorship, education, STEM programs.
  • In-Workforce: guiding and educating Chicago tech companies, as well as male and female employees of those organizations, on creating prosperous and inclusive environments for women.  Download our best practices document on creating a thriving workplace for women.
  • Positions of Influence: growing the number of women on boards and in the C-Suite at Chicago tech companies.  View our Benchmark Study in which we identify the number of women in leadership positions at Chicago tech companies.
