Empower And Inspire Every Woman And Girl To Be Her Personal Best
In Her Shoes Foundation (IHSF) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to embrace and encourage the potential of all women and girls by providing positive influences, learning opportunities, leadership development, and community partnerships. The flagship program – “Ready Set Girls Academy” – is a curriculum that provides teens in middle school and high school with life skills, coping techniques, and self-esteem improvement. IHSF’s professional development program for women – “Ready Set Women Academy” – offers practical tips and guidance on issues from pay negotiations to resume support, leadership to work-life balance, and positive personal growth to workplace achievement. Lastly, the “Giving Back Program” offers volunteer opportunities and partnerships in the Chicago community. After serving as a crisis counselor to young girls and women on the South Side and North Shore of Chicago for more than a decade, Kasia Wereszczynska founded IHSF to further inspire and empower girls and women across Chicago.
