For our first event hosted in a prison, we brought a music concert to 150 inmates at Statesville Correction Center in Joliet. Later in the year we took Chicago CEOs to Division 11 of the Cook County Jail on the south side of Chicago for intimate discussions with detainees, dinner with detainees that was cooked by their Recipe for Change Program, a tour of the jail, and a concert with some of our favorite Chicago artists.
We are mobilized by these events because real change happens when people of all different backgrounds listen to one other. The universal takeaway from the event was finding the common ground that makes us all similar, realizing that we all want exactly the same thing from life yet come from different circumstances. The world needs more of this now than ever.
Events such as these help sharpen our tools to do great work for our clients.
These events happened in 2018, and we are committed to doing them annually.
