Despite a recent popular awakening around racial justice work, racial inequities have long plagued our country. Chicagoland's segregation, for instance, costs us billions in lost income, lost lives, and lost potential. This conversation asks people in the fields of financial services, urban planning, journalism, and higher education how they are grappling with our shared, limiting history, and how we can leverage the unique power of recent political moments to move professional environments forward in support of a more equitable region.

Paul C. Carlisle, Chief Operating Officer and Market Head – Commercial Banking, Wintrust, Alden Loury, Senior Editor, Race, Class and Communities, WBEZ, and Nadia Quarles, Assistant Vice President of Business Diversity, The University of Chicago will sit down with moderator Kendra Freeman, Director of Community Development and Engagement, Metropolitan Planning Council, for this important conversation.

This event is hosted by The Executive's Club of Chicago.
