Join the Korean American Coalition of Chicago (KACC) for a discussion on Representation in the Business and Local Community here in Chicago!

With the recent success of the film Crazy Rich Asians, we can all be certain of one thing: Representation Matters. There is no doubt that this movie was a huge win for the Asian community in Hollywood which opened up many doors in the film and entertainment industry.

Representation in the business and community matters. Take the opportunity to engage in discussions on how to improve representation, how businesses and community can tie together, and how to open up more doors for career growth in Chicago!

Are we seeing the representation we want to be seeing in leadership and executive positions at work? What can we do at work and within the community to increase our representation in the city? How will increased representation benefit our professional and personal lives? Hear from business and community leaders on how they perceive representation in Chicago, their involvement within their local community and professional careers, and the impact they have made in increasing representation.


Tables will each have a Leader “hosting” and conducting conversation. Attendees can sit at each area at any given time and have an intimate conversation with a Leader. Attendees will rotate areas every 20 minutes. Suggested questions and conversation topics will be handed to each Leader and attendee to help fuel the discussion.
