continues its partnership with Kellogg
Kellogg School is pleased to be continuing its partnership
with The Allstate Foundation. Allstate renewed its commitment
with a $1,000,000 gift over five years designated to the school's
Center for Executive
Women (CEW) in support of the Women's Senior Leadership
Program (WSLP.) The alliance between the CEW and The Allstate
Foundation has resulted in numerous opportunities for both
organizations to enhance their current civic endeavors and
reach out to address new areas.
WSLP was developed by the CEW with support from The Allstate
Foundation, which has been the exclusive sponsor of the program
since its 2004 launch. The program's goal is to advance more
women into senior leadership roles. While there are many women
at the beginning and middle of the corporate pipeline, few
women occupy the top offices.
portion of the Allstate gift provides scholarships to nonprofit
organizations, including to female executives from Boys and
Girls Clubs of America, Chicago Battered Women's Network and
Junior Achievement of Chicago.
WSLP benefits both the women who attend the program and their
organizations and clients. Program participants become role
models and mentors for the people they manage and especially
for young female employees. Kellogg deeply appreciates Allstate's
commitment to helping women move into senior leadership roles.
