Bernadine Wims

Executive Coordinator

CFW’s role in Chicago’s community of women and girls depends on meetings – and more meetings. My role here helps with scheduling and set up for those meetings. I also help to maintain the necessary ‘day-to-day’ office operations and staff needs. Being the mother of two girls (now women) and 3 granddaughters, I can see how my life and their lives are basically the same. But thanks to organizations like this one, there is more knowledge about different education that leads to better job opportunities – for them and for future generations. That is very encouraging! I now lead a women’s ministry group at my church. Thanks to CFW, I’ve been able to provide various information (from STEM opportunities to help with senior age issues) to the women / girls at the church which – hopefully – spreads to the community.
