Think differently. Act collectively.
The mission of the Corporate Coalition is to significantly reduce severe inequities in the Chicago region by identifying and implementing new ways for companies to deploy their capital, capabilities, and employee enthusiasm.
We are an alliance of companies that operate in the Chicagoland region — large and small, public and private, old and new — committed to examining how we hire, support, promote, procure, and invest to create opportunities for everyone in our region. We know we must extend beyond the critical role of philanthropy and the important work of helping others improve their operations.
The Corporate Coalition of Chicago is committed to driving large-scale change, leveraging collective power across a variety of issues to combat systemic inequities. Today, that means:
- Creating more healing-centered workplaces to tap into the incredible talent in our city through the Chicago Resiliency Network;
- Bringing much needed business diversity to how corporations purchase goods and services, including services from the city’s thriving professional services sector, through two Business Diversity efforts: Diversity in Supply Chain and Diversity in Professional Services;
- Thinking – and acting – differently about how we invest human and financial capital on the south and west sides to support critical community initiatives in Chicago through our Catalytic Investments initiative.
