Our Mission and History

Leadership Illinois is a professional and personal support network that brings together a diverse group of accomplished women from all sectors of society to educate, energize and connect, so that each can be a catalyst for positive change.

In 1988, four women were inspired to start Leadership Illinois. Leonore Janecek, Lois Ryan, Vilma Colom, and Peggy Montes had just completed the Leadership America program, and shared a passion to provide a similar program for Illinois.

These founding women, along with Laura Sullivan and Elynor Williams, worked to create the program and its annual conference format, developing support of Illinois businesses and interested individuals.

To honor our founder's history and our mission, you can help make our programs available to future female leaders.
