About Us

In Her Shoes Foundation began as the Positive Girls Club in 2008 for women of all ages who were determined to make positive changes in their lives. Small gatherings were held where women came together to share positive thoughts, provide inspiration to each other and share self-improvement opportunities. The group began to slowly grow and gain momentum. As a forum for women to build strong individual and community relationships, Positive Girls Club became a strong professional resource in the Chicago-land area.


In 2010 the name was changed to In Her Shoes Chicago and plans were put into place to formalize the group through incorporation as a not-for-profit organization. A kick-off event was held to introduce the new structure and provide the opportunity for women to learn about future plans and direction of the group. Additionally, an initial Board of Directors was assembled and in 2011 a programming plan was developed. This plan included regular monthly workshops, social and community events, meetings, annual women's retreats and a yearly conference.


In late 2011, In Her Shoes Chicago was changed to In Her Shoes Foundation and expanded internationally. In Her Shoes Foundation continues to provide opportunities for women to inspire, connect, educate and support the development and maintenance of a positive and healthy life style.


In Her Shoes Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
