Join us for WorldChicago’s largest fundraiser of the year!

In recognition of her lifetime support of women’s achievement in Chicago and abroad, Ms. Ratner will also be presented the 2014 WorldChicago Gold Medallion Citizen Diplomacy Award. The Gold Medallion Award, a long-time WorldChicago tradition, is presented to an individual or Chicago-based organization that has made a distinguished contribution to promoting citizen diplomacy within the international arena.
Featuring Keynote Speaker and 2014 Gold Medallion Citizen Diplomacy Award Recipient Ms. Hedy Ratner, she is founder and co-president emeritus of and currently consultant with the Women’s Business Development Center.

Daley and Mayor Rahm Emanuel to the Mayor’s Affirmative Action Advisory Council; and, by Cook County Board President Preckwinkle to the Cook County Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise Council.
Hedy is the recipient of numerous awards honoring her impactful efforts, a few of which include: the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award by Enterprising Women Magazine, the 2013 Advocate Award from Entrepreneurs Experience, and the 2012 Lifetime Advocacy Award from the Federation of Women Contractors.
