Thank you to everyone who supported and attended the 7th Annual Little Black Dress Night on May 12, 2021! Check back soon for the date for the 8th Annual Little Black Dress Night.

This year’s Little Black Dress Night was the most successful year yet! We heard from several amazing panelists and speakers, including a surprise appearance from the CEO of Chicago Public Schools, Janice Jackson. This year we explored themes of impostor syndrome, vulnerability and creating an equitable futures for women and people of color in STEM. 

We had 200 guests attend our virtual event and raised more than $150,000! Thank you to all of our corporate sponsors and guests who made this event possible. We are also excited to have awarded scholarships to several members of our Young Women Leadership Society to help with their college journeys. 

We hope that you can join ChiTech again next year for another night of empowering our young leaders!
