In celebration of Women’s History Month, United Way of Metro Chicago’s Women United chapter invites you to Purposeful Transitions: Leveraging Personal Growth for Community Impact. The breakfast networking event will feature keynote speaker Dorri McWhorter, the first female CEO of the YMCA of Metro Chicago, who will share how life’s changes and challenges have impacted her and what inspired her transition from the private to nonprofit sector.

The program will conclude with a personal break-out session in which attendees will create a plan to kick-start change in their own lives.
