About SHE Chicago Publishing

SHE Chicago Publishing is the sister company of SHE Chicago, a young women’s empowerment non-profit organization that provides character education, community service and college and career support to high performing, under resourced teen girls.

SHE is an acronym that means Strong. Humble. Empowered. These attributes function as values that characterize the business that we do. At SHE we believe that at the core of every strong, humble and empowered person is great character and a commitment to serving others through their own lives. SHE Chicago Publishing advances those values by elevating the voices of self publishing writers seeking to spread positivity, raise awareness, and teach others the value of great character.
