On behalf of KOWIN Chicago, we would like to thank our wonderful conference attendees for supporting KOWIN’s 9th U.S. Eastern Region Leadership Conference for Korean American Women and our fabulous Gala Dinner “Celebrating Korea’s Beautiful Heritage,” both held at Chicago’s world-renowned Willis Tower on June 10, 2017. With your support, the conference and gala celebration were a great success! Under the theme Build Your Future with Passion, Perseverance and Hope, the conference provided great opportunities for KOWIN members to learn from our inspiring guest speakers and panelists from a diverse range of career fields, celebrate our achievements, and provide outstanding mentoring opportunities for the next generation of Korean American women. The remaining proceeds from the Leadership Conference will be earmarked for the Chicago Korean Women’s Scholarship Fund 2017/2018 for high-achieving young women of Korean descent in developing countries and KOWIN’s Community Outreach Mentoring Programs with college students in the Greater Chicago area. Thanks so much again to everyone for your generosity and participation – we couldn’t have done this without you!
