Polish American Women’s Conference

Polish people have been in Chicago for over 150 years, and they have made a significant impact on the economic, political, spiritual, and cultural growth of Chicago.
There are over a century’s worth of contributions from Poles who have made our city great. Polish women have been teachers, builders, entrepreneurs, and activists who have worked hard for their families and communities, as well as their own success.
The Polish Women’s Conference is a one day event open to the public, featuring women of Polish heritage who discuss their perspective on leadership, business, and education, as well as political and community life.
The Polish Women’s Conference is made possible by cooperation between Polish Women in Business, and Omnis Communications.
This event is full of inspirational and motivated women who share best practices about empowerment, career, personal fulfillment, and balance in life.
It will be a great opportunity to learn, share, discuss, connect and network.

The Conference includes two segments:

  • The power of influence – Involvement in political and community life
  • There are no limits, only choices – Turning passion into profession
