Illinois Hires Heroes Consortium

The IHHC is a group of Illinois employers who recognize the great value veterans bring to the workplace and operationalize the term "veteran-friendly" by committing to implement military veteran recruitment, training and retention practices. Members of the Consortium are Illinois employers who commit to at least three initiatives - one in each aforementioned human resource category.


Founded in 1974, Resilience (formerly Rape Victim Advocates) has been on the front lines of working with survivors of sexual violence. We continue to work with survivors of sexual violence. However, our work now addresses the entire spectrum of sexual violence, including harassment, abuse, and prevention, with an additional focus on public education and institutional advocacy.


Girlology is a growing national brand with the voice parents trust for age-appropriate, medically accurate, engaging, and cringe-free messages about healthy sexual development. Founded by two physicians (also moms), they provide community-based, comprehensive sexuality education for youth and the adults who care for them. They deliver their health-focused and timely content.
