Civil Society

Chicago isn’t just the Land of Lincoln, it’s the home of the American presidency. From Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant, to Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama, Chicago has always been front and center in U.S. civic society, and a unique case study for understanding public sector challenges and reform initiatives. Whether embedding visitors in local government offices or designing a workshop-based experimental learning initiative, WorldChicago can leverage the resources of our region to train and educate your team in best-practices in the public sector.
