Getting Results: DEIA Strategies that Work
Wednesday, May 31, 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Mesirow Auditorium, 353 N. Clark St., Chicago
As our society has undergone massive changes over the past few years, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) has become more important than ever. Many companies have seen the value in investing in DEIA strategies but aren’t seeing the results they expected. There are many reasons why these strategies fail, from leaders not being aligned on priorities to lack of funding or infrastructure to properly see the strategies through. In this panel discussion hosted by the Executives’ Club of Chicago, experts will explore ways to make sure there is organizational alignment around DEIA initiatives as a priority. The panelists will delve into optimal structures to support these initiatives, ensure metrics and incentives align, how to make sure leadership is on the same page, and more ways to best achieve real results.
From Menarche To Menopause And Everything In Between With Dr. Sameena Rahman
Wednesday, June 7, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Center for Gynecology and Cosmetics, 312 N May St, Suite 110, Chicago
Join the Professional Women’s Club of Chicago for an overview of women’s health conditions along with evidence-based information about women’s reproductive and sexual health. While there are many historical taboos surrounding the female body, Dr. Sameena Rahman’s passion is to provide increased awareness and greater cultural understanding of topics such as menstruation, infertility, sexual dysfunction, chronic pelvic pain, postpartum care, and menopause.
Preparing for the Future of Electric Vehicles
Tuesday, June 13, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Dykema, 10 S Wacker Dr., Fl 23, Chicago
While individuals and businesses transition to electric vehicles (EVs), it’s important to consider what governments need to understand when transitioning their fleets to electric. Join the Chicagoland Chamber for an important discussion on the transition to EVs and gain insights on the steps required to support the future of EVs that will drive sustainable economic growth. The panel will discuss the charging infrastructure required to support electric vehicles, including the integration of high-speed 5G wireless networks in transportation, which will be transformative for Americans—generating billions of dollars in economic benefits, reducing congestion and saving lives. The panel will also discuss battery storage, power sources, and renewable energy, as these are critical components that enable the transition to electric vehicles and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Lucy and Charlie’s Honeymoon – Lookingglass Theatre
May 25 – July 16
Hooray! Lucy and Charlie just got hitched…and they’re embracing the worst of the American dream. They do what they want. Take what they want. They’re First Generation Asian American Renegades. In love. And on the run.
Featuring original country western and folk songs, directed by Amanda Dehnert (Peter Pan (A Play), Eastland), Lucy and Charlie’s Honeymoon tracks a young couple as they rev it down quintessentially American highways and across stereotypic borders, fleeing expectation and trawling up trouble along the way.
Direct from his Broadway debut in Almost Famous The Musical, Artistic Associate Matthew C. Yee’s world premiere musical romp gives a nod to America’s past, takes tally of its present, and blows its future wide open.
