Celebrating women. Sharing stories. Inspiring others.

The ExtraOrdinary Women Project (EOW) recognizes the quiet efforts, tenacity and perseverance of those who identify as women in McLean County by sharing their stories in the spirit of celebration and with the aim of inspiring others.

These women are the unsung heroes in their circles of families, friends and colleagues. They are our everyday heroes. Nominations will be taken on a rolling quarterly basis and identified monthly. Winners' stories will appear on the EOW website, EOW Facebook page and through our media partners.

EOW has selected its ExtraOrdinary Woman for the third quarter of 2022 - Alexis Kalish. Read her story here.
