ABOUT GWC

GoodWorkChicago is now entering its third year as a convener, advocate, mobilizer, information gatherer, and catalyzer.

We partner with some of Chicago’s most influential individuals and organizations to bring together everyday young professionals who want to use their vocations to strengthen the city of Chicago.

We also advocate for innovative do-gooders in our city – in government, corporate world, and individuals – with an emphasis on individuals from under-resourced neighborhoods.

More than gathering brilliant minds and engaging in conversation, we leverage discussions and ideas as a jumping off point into action items or achievements that will help build our city.

And, now, we are beginning to communicate trends and develop metrics in Chicago’s social innovation space to help bring ideas to life – in ways that are as effective and efficient as possible.

In 2015-2016, our three-day forum will expand to a year-round program to ensure the momentum of ideas generated grow into tangible action by all those who attend.
