Since its inception in 2011, the primary goal of the Women’s Executive Forum has been simple: to bring together the Chicagoland association industry’s brightest current and future women leaders to learn from and connect with one another. The program’s format is designed to allow CEOs and executive directors the opportunity to candidly discuss specific challenges they face and then share with and learn from their future leaders.
In 2015, we introduced Conversation Circles, open-forum discussions intended to continue the conversations that were started at Women’s Executive Forum and dive deeper into surrounding key topics.

During this lively interactive session you will discover the value of Grit to accomplish your long term goals. 

  • You will learn how about your own Grit level.
  • How your Grit impacts your passions and perseverance.  
  • How identifying and applying the Grit in yourself will help you accomplish your long term business and personal goals.


Please join this exciting conversation to learn more about the 5 personality characteristics that will help further identify, develop and measure your grittiness!
