CHICAGO – Participating in a social media town hall, Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will field questions this evening on government, leadership, and the importance of female mentorship. Simon’s discussion, “Policies That Help Women and Girls – and the Consequences When They Don’t,” is the third in a series of social media town halls hosted by the Chicago Foundation for Women.


“There is no shortage of women and girls looking to take the next step and lead,” said Simon, a mother of two and former professor and prosecutor. “It’s our responsibility to reach out and help the next generation find its path to success.”


This is the third and final town hall presented by the Chicago Foundation for Women leading up to its 27th Annual Luncheon on Thursday. Attendees of the luncheon will include all three town hall guests: Simon, Katrina Markoff, CEO and founder of Vosges Haut-Chocolat, and Cheryle Jackson, vice president of government affairs and corporate development of AAR Corp. Anita Hill, professor of law, social policy and women’s studies at Brandeis University, will serve as the luncheon’s keynote speaker.
