The CAF Rising Stars Award recognizes the talents and contributions of four, next-generation women, coming up in the marketing, sales, media, and advertising industries. They are the creators and innovators bringing fresh thinking, ideas, and execution to the communications industry, their company, and the Chicagoland community. Rising Star awardees are the difference makers propelling our industry forward. Last chance to register for our first Coffee Chat of 2021, honoring our  CAF Young Professionals Rising Stars.
