Women’s Leadership Committee


The Women’s Leadership Committee increases awareness and provides fundraising support for Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center by hosting and promoting events throughout the year. This collaborative committee is excited to offer engaging, educational and social programming across Chicagoland.

At Illinois Holocaust Museum, we honor the memory of all who were killed during the Holocaust by teaching universal lessons that combat hatred, prejudice, and indifference, and inspiring visitors to become Upstanders who speak out for what’s right – turning powerful lessons of history into positive actions today. The Museum activates this mission through cutting-edge exhibitions and innovative public programming that brings scholars, activists and artists together with the community to discuss how to improve our world. As the second largest Holocaust museum in the country, designed by world-renowned architect Stanley Tigerman, we welcome and touch the lives of 150,000 individuals annually, providing them with the knowledge, skills, and courage to take a stand for humanity. We provide significant support to more than 650 schools across Illinois and throughout the Midwest, including Chicago Public Schools, suburban school districts, and parochial schools, helping them to engage students around the topics of values, civics, and responsible citizenship.
