Gender bias and gender-based violence is a global issue that stands in the way of opportunity and equity for women and girls. Women make up more than half of Illinois’ population, but biases remain embedded in the structures in which we all work, pray, play, and live.  How can we change this?  What can we do to provide more opportunities for women and girls to succeed?


Join K. Sujata, the President and CEO of Chicago Foundation for Women (CFW), for a compelling presentation on why we must invest in women and girls. For over 30 years, the foundation has been committed to changing the narrative and the trajectory by building a stronger, safer metropolitan region for women and girls.
Under Sujata’s leadership, CFW has experienced double-digit growth in the funding of nonprofit organizations in Chicago.

In her role since 2011, Sujata brought to CFW prior experience in program development at several notable Chicago nonprofits. She has been the Director of Programs at the Eleanor Foundation (now part of Chicago Foundation for Women), where she was instrumental in developing and implementing the foundation’s unique program aimed at the economic self-sufficiency of low income working women. As the Director of the Chicago Continuum of Care (now part of AllChicago), Sujata was responsible for implementing Chicago’s Plan to End Homelessness. 

Sujata started her career in nonprofits as the Executive Director of ApnaGhar (Our Home), a domestic violence agency serving immigrant battered women and their children, where she succeeded in turning deficits into surpluses and tripling the organization’s revenue.

Sujata is a member of the Board of Forefront and Women’s Funding Network. She also serves on the Steering Committee of the Asset Funders Network.  She is a founding director of the South Asian American Policy and Research Institute.  Sujata earned an MBA from IIT and a Ph.D, in Materials Science and Engineering from Northwestern University.

Sujata has been profiled and interviewed by the media, including the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Public Media and Crain’s Chicago Business. She writes a regular column for the Huffington Post. Her blog can be found at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/k-sujata/. Follow her on twitter @k_sujata.
