WHO WE ARE

UN Women USA Chicago Chapter is an independent non-profit, 501c3 organization that supports UN Women programs. Our work helps advance social, political, and economic equality for women and girls spanning 100 countries around the globe.

 

We work to regularly organize mission-driven events and activities, which help raise awareness around critical issues impacting communities worldwide and support key fundraising efforts.

 

Our financial support and advocacy benefits UN Women projects, such as:

 

  • Opening women’s access to finance and expanding employment options in Pakistan, resulting in secure employment for 1,000 women and growing
  • Training more than 6,000 women in marketing and business management in Ethiopia
  • Extending paralegal services for survivors of domestic violence in the marginalized Roma communities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, leading to a 50-per-cent increase in requests for help
