The 9th Annual New Look of Leadership fashion show will bring together Chicago’s top business leaders to walk the runway showcasing styles from local, independent designers. Participating models embody the YWCA’s values and demonstrate a commitment to the organization’s mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. This event will convene nearly 250 business and community leaders for an afternoon of fashion, food, and networking.
