Chicago is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the U.S., yet also one of the most segregated and divided. How does this affect Chicago’s community as a whole: its economics, its education, and its health? This fall, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Northwestern University will examine these issues together and in a systematic way, to better understand their interconnectedness. The free half-day community forum, cohosted with Leadership Greater Chicago, will shed light on the endemic inequity in our city and the inevitable, far reaching consequences of ignoring the issues.
The panelists, including MPC Vice President Marisa Novara, will discuss how community organizations can build stronger and more equitable communities by working together on interrelated challenges including housing, health, education, business and neighborhood development. Our experts will share their ideas on what is being done, what can be done, and the consequences of inaction. A question and answer session with our speakers and panel will follow their talks.
