LAKE FOREST, IL (SEPTEMBER-NOVEMBER 2014) – Amie Marks, founder of Women in the Know, believes that women can move mountains when working together toward a common goal. Marks launched Women in the Know in May 2013, offering women a platform by way of a series of discussions and complimentary luncheons to speak openly about world issues, current events, and timely topics. The series have ranged from GMO’s and organics, the U.S. healthcare system, and women’s issues in foreign countries. Throughout September-November 2014, Marks will speak on the tough issue of teenage mental health and suicide, which seems to be a hard-hitting topic in the North Shore community.
