Our mission is to be the unifying federation of Islamic organizations of greater Chicagoland, the leading advocate of Muslim community interests and a catalyst for enriching American society.


CIOGC hosted a month-long program during March, 2021 to highlight the work and achievements of Muslim women in greater Chicago. The online seminar series is a part of the DEI initiative to highlight accomplishments of diverse groups within our community. Weekly webinars brought together Muslimah holding leadership positions in the mosques, at nonprofit organizations, and in the workplace, as well as successful entrepreneurs. In the webinars the leaders discussed their individual path of accomplishments and offered advice and counsel regarding the hurdles each faced as a Muslim woman.

The series also served as a networking opportunity and has provided the impetus for further collaboration among the participants. We invite you to contact CIOGC to be a part of the planning for the 2022 online seminar series.
