Take the Chicago Pledge
Recognizing the profound impact that COVID-19 has had on Chicagoland's economy, as well the pandemic's disproportionate impact on communities of color, we take the Chicago Pledge to:
Buy Locally: Buy from Chicagoland companies, particularly minority, women, and disadvantaged business enterprises (M/W/DBE's), and small businesses, which are the backbone of our regional supply chain.
Hire Locally: Hire and recruit locally and forge new partnerships to diversify talent pipelines.
Invest Locally: Invest in disadvantaged communities by partnering with community organizations to deliver volunteers and other resources.
Listen & Learn: Facilitate and promote conversations within our companies and communities about structural inequalities related to economic opportunity, health care, education, and transportation.
