An Evening to Support Tomorrow’s Young Leaders
Hosted annually by ChiTech’s Young Women’s Leadership Society, Little Black Dress Night is where we bring together community speakers and thought-leaders to share ideas for overcoming diversity challenges, including underrepresentation of women and those in the African American and Latinx communities, faced by the next generation of STEM students and entrepreneurs.
The money we raise through tickets sales and donations supports our mission to educate and empower a diverse group of young talent, and directly helps send 20 students to college!
It’s a way to recognize the support we receive from Chicago’s business and tech communities, while at the same time shining a spotlight on an important cause.

The Young Women’s Leadership Society provides support for female students’ professional advancement as future leaders in tech and entrepreneurship. YWLS sponsors events, hosts workshops, plans college campus visits, and facilitates
discussion. These activities are designed to examine stereotypes, explore the development of healthy relationships, and foster the skills necessary for the cultivation of valuable professional networks.
