ONCE AGAIN, THE CHICAGO CHAPTER of the Fulbright Association partnered with WorldChicago to celebrate the 2013 International Women’s Day that took place on March 8 at the Union League Club of Chicago.
In this opportunity, the keynote speaker of the event was Ellen Costello, Chief Executive Officer, BMO Financial Corp. and U.S. Country Head, and cultural presentations by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, and Dr. Aparajita Sangupta, Fulbright Scholar from India in residence at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana.
The Fulbright Chicago Chapter sponsors a table at this event every year, which is supported by the generous contributions of its board members. The board members donate their tickets to current Fulbright students who are selected by the Institute of International Education, Midwest office.
Ron Harvey, president of the Chicago Chapter, and board members Dr. Ana Gil-García, Dr. Marilyn Susman and Don Garner participated in this celebration along with six Fulbright students.
