We talked with two Chicago organizations with dynamic histories: Chicago United and Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra. Chicago United is the catalyst driving business leaders to maximize economic impact for all races. Created in 1968, Chicago United was the first group to bring together racially diverse CEOs with a common goal of creating a stronger social and economic climate for everyone in Chicago.
