100 Dreams, 100 Stories


"Our goal is to take back our narratives."

100 Dreams, 100 Stories is a Let's Vibe initiative successfully first piloted in collaboration with Chicago Global Shapers. Through pop-up sessions with organizations across Chicago, 100 women share their stories and use design thinking to take their dreams from idea to reality. In each session, participants:

Hear the stories of impactful women innovators & leaders

Build meaningful connections with one another

Learn to take an idea and make it tangible

From feeling like they are not alone in their life and career journey to learning new skills to design their lives, participants are empowered to dream and make their dreams a reality with a community supporting them every step of the way!

Our partner organizations have included Hive Chicago Buzz, DePaul Women Empowered, City Year, & more
