Cecile De Mello
We are honored this week to feature Cecile De Mello, Executive Director of Teamwork Englewood as our #WCW! Cecile has leveraged her talents and passion each day to improve the quality of life of the residents and stakeholders of Englewood, a vibrant neighborhood on Chicago’s south side that is healing from decades of systemic racism and strategic disinvestment.
Cecile is passionate about providing resources and lifting girls’ and women’s voices to help them achieve economic independence. She is also an active member of the Englewood Women’s Initiative, powered by the Chicago Foundation for Women, where she helped create a partnership to provide food resources to households within the surrounding Chicago area. We admire her passion, diligence, and dedication to help women reach economic independence, which is why she is our #WCW this week!
