A recurring theme in the search for positive female role models and mentors, What qualities do they possess? How does one seek them out? And, in a world where high-profile women are consistently threatened and attacked on the basis of their femininity, where can the next generation of female leaders look to find reassurance, solidarity, and above all, hope? Thankfully, Chicago is filled to the brim with strong, innovative and endlessly compassionate women who have dedicated their lives to helping others and shattering the glass ceiling one crack at a time.
