Twenty-five Chicago women will be honored Saturday, April 17th at the West Side Women of Wisdom & Inspiration Awards event.
The Theme “2021 Hidden Figures” is so befitting for these women because of their inspiring work on behalf of those in need. They have shown a love for our community, a commitment to youth empowerment and creating generational wealth. For all the good that they do, the half has yet to be told.
So today we want to celebrate these West Side women “2021 Hidden Figures.” This theme best describes women who contribute so much to society but receive little recognition in return.
Each one of them is highly regarded on Chicago’s West Side and represent a wide range of local business owners, mentors, program directors, executive assistants, faith leaders and community advocates.
With so much violence in the city of Chicago, all of these women are on the front lines with developing solutions to save our young people.
Most of our honorees are mothers and grandmothers who have taken on the additional responsibility of providing life- saving, structured environments for all of the children, teenagers and young adults in our community.
They are courageous and creative. We honor them for their lifetimes of service and continuing outstanding efforts for the West Side and for Chicago.
An in-person event will be held from 3:30 to 7 p.m. at the the Columbus Park Refectory, 5701 West Jackson Blvd. Masks are required, and social distancing guidelines will be followed.
DW Provision Consulting Services organized Saturday’s event. Sponsors include the Leaders Network and Habilitative Systems Inc. benefitting Project Exploration and Chicago Austin Youth Travel Adventures.
