Celebrating 70 years of citizen diplomacy!

Join WorldChicago for a night of cocktails as we celebrate 70 years of engaging Chicagoans and emerging leaders from around the world. As the United States' oldest nonprofit organization focused on citizen diplomacy, we have facilitated cross-sector collaborations and enhanced the skills of emerging international leaders. We are pleased to dedicate this celebration to Louis Vitullo, to honor his 17 years of citizen diplomacy as a WorldChicago Board Member.

WorldChicago continues to bring 800 to 1,000 Department of State-sponsored visitors to Chicago virtually and in-person each year. WorldChicago has influenced democracy around the world!

On Thursday, October 27th, WorldChicago will celebrate these accomplishments at our 70th Anniversary celebration at the Allegro Royal Sonesta Hotel in downtown Chicago. Tickets are $150.
