Review for Women Employed, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Women Employed is an organization with a strong mission to improve the American workplace for women. The nonprofit agency sticks to that mission in its daily work. I first learned about it when I was about 25 and was really just getting started in my career. At the time, I saw injustices in the workplace but had no way of expressing it or responding to it. I heard about Women Employed and was interested in getting more involved in it. I didn't pursue it at the time, but I never forgot about the organization. Later I applied for a job there, and though I didn't quite fit their needs, they suggested I join their Marketing Committee. It has been interesting.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I've enjoyed watching the Women Employed staff take ideas and create outstanding communication programs. They do a great job of communicating the agency's many messages.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

They are exceptional--very committed to the work and quite capable at communicating the WE message.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create more training and educational opportunities for women. Have an even bigger impact on the workplace in Chicago.

Ways to make it better...

This survey hadn't been so long!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding, mission, Strong identity, Exposure to the greater Chicago community

One thing I'd also say is that...

Women Employed Chicago is a well-managed organization with good, hard-working and competent staff.
