The month of March is dedicated to women.
Women who have broken barriers. Women who are breaking barriers. And young women and girls who will break barriers. It is with this reflection of past, present and future that this collection was created.
In early March, we asked leaders to have an honest dialogue about female representation and empowerment. Attendees included: Alicia Gonzalez, Executive Director of Cubs Charities; Mariya Chukas, Girls in the Game alum; Laura Ricketts, Cubs Board Member and Cubs Charities Board Chair; Kate Lynn Lewis, Chicago-based muralist; and Colin Faulkner, Cubs Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing and Chief Commercial Officer.LEARN MORE
