Since 2002, the International Trade Club of Chicago, WorldChicago and Union League Club of Chicago have worked together to present this annual Fair and Luncheon on International Women's Day.

Each year, the luncheon features a keynote speaker or panelists who have distinguished themselves in a field locally and often internationally. Specific criteria are used in the careful consideration and selection of speakers. They are chosen for their leadership in business, education, media, health care, or public service and for advancing women’s empowerment, economic development, potential for growth, and quality of life.  Immediately prior to the luncheon, we host an International Women’s Day Fair at the same location showcasing local organizations that support women in their work.
