On behalf of the Board of Directors for Women in Leadership of Central Illinois, welcome! We have so much to offer and are excited to get you involved with our organization through professional networking, community involvement, and personal growth.
Women in Leadership brings together professional women who desire to grow professionally and personally.
Monthly Luncheons: We host luncheons on the second Thursday of each month at the Par-A-Dice Hotel. Luncheons feature captivating speakers, a delicious lunch and time for conversation and networking.
Awards Luncheon: Our June luncheon is our Annual Awards Luncheon where we celebrate phenomenal women who stand out in their profession and in our community. We recognize four award winners: Outstanding New Leader, Community Leader, Career Leader, and Woman of the Year.
Annual Leadership Conference: In partnership with NAWBO, we host the Annual Leadership Conference in September each year. This event is open to the general public and will give you the courage to lead in all aspects of your life. It is filled with inspiring women from diverse backgrounds.
Special Events: We host special events throughout the year for members to enhance their relationships via creative, fun, and social environments. At our end of year special event in July, we celebrate our accomplishments from the past year and welcome another exciting WIL year!
Scholarship Fund: We are a caring group of women who look for opportunities to help women achieve their goals. In 2006, the Women in Leadership of Central Illinois Scholarship Fund was established by the generosity of the our membership. In the past decade, it has grown to an endowment fund providing scholarships to non-traditional women in the Tri-County area pursuing college/university, post graduate, or accreditation/certification for business management and professional/entrepreneurial education. For more information on our scholarship and how to apply, please click here. Our annual scholarship is announced at our June Awards Luncheon.
Thank you for taking the time to read about our organization. We invite you to attend our next luncheon to learn more!
