The Polish community has been an integral part of Chicago for over 150 years, making a significant impact on the economic, political, spiritual, and cultural growth of the city.

There are over a century’s worth of contributions from Poles who have made our city great. Polish women have been teachers, builders, entrepreneurs, and activists who have worked hard for their families and communities, as well as their own success.

The Polish Women’s Conference is a one-day event open to the public, featuring successful women of Polish heritage who discuss their perspective on leadership, business, and education, as well as political and community life.

The Polish Women’s Conference is made possible by cooperation between Polish Women in Business and Omnis Communications.

This event is full of inspirational and motivated women who share best practices about empowerment, career, personal fulfillment, and balance in life.

It is a great opportunity to learn, share, discuss, connect and network.

This year’s conference includes two segments:

  • The power of influence: involvement in political and community life
  • There are no limits, only choices: turning passion into profession

“The Polish American Women’s Conference is a celebration of our heritage. Last year’s event was full of extraordinary people who uplift the community and inspire us all to do better. This year’s event will be a great platform for personal and professional growth and networking.”

Margaret Ptaszynska, Polish Radio and TV personality, coordinator, event organizer

“For Polish Women in Business, this event is an excellent opportunity for business owners and entrepreneurs to initiate and expand their contacts and learn from special guests.”

Anna Tukiendorf–Wilhite, President of Polish Women in Business
