Program Overview

The COVID-19 crisis has changed the routine of life for many of us. With virtual environments and ongoing uncertainty becoming our new normal, we know the importance of community… and the significant role that women play in leading the communities around them.

Women United is proud to bring you Creating Connections, a small group program designed to give women the community and support they need. Creating Connections is a 4-month program in which groups of 8-10 women will virtually meet for 45 minutes every 3 weeks, September through December 2020. During each Connection, women will have the opportunity to network, expand their circles in a meaningful way and seek/provide support for each other.

Expand their professional and personal network

Gain broader perspective and support on specific goals or challenges

Walk away with a specific action plan

Reap the benefit of focused time and accountability


How the program works

Creating Connections is a 4-month program in which groups of 8-10 women will virtually meet for 45 minutes every 3 weeks, September through December 2020. Participants are assigned to a Creating Connections group based on their preferred time and focus area. Times of the virtual sessions will be either:

- Monday at 8am CT
- Monday at 12 noon CT
- Wednesday at 8am CT
- Wednesday at 12 noon CT

In each 45-minute Connection, group members will share their goals for the conversation and/or their support needs, followed by a guided discussion based on the group’s overall focus.

The registration for the Fall Creating Connections program is now closed. For questions, please contact WomenUnited@liveunitedchicago.org
