Women Who Win: 2020 Fall Fundraiser

Mark your calendars for our annual fall fundraiser Women Who Win on Thursday, October 15th, from 6:00PM-7:00PM! For this year’s virtual event, we will be putting a new spin on our typical celebration of trailblazers. We are pleased to welcome some of our nation’s most impressive women leaders — DCCC Chair Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IWIL Class of 2006), United States Senator Tammy Duckworth, and DSCC Chair United States Senator Catherine Cortez Masto.

This annual fundraiser allows IWIL Training Academy to offer a year-long training program at no cost to our class members. You can RSVP online here, or for more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Hannah Botelho at staff@iwiltrainingacademy.org or 312-646-0276.   We hope to see you, virtually, on October 15th. Thank you for your support of IWIL Training Academy!
