expand your network. share your success.


Join us as we celebrate the diverse communities throughout our city, improve cultural understanding and advocate for the underrepresented. Our members not only share resources and ideas, but they support one another and their respective communities through cross-cultural programming. These programs provide resources to minority communities and connect our Core and Partner Members with experts who share our wish for a more equitable and inclusive Chicago. 


WE LOOK TO YOU TO HELP LEAD THE CHANGE. we are the alliance.
