Diversely Owned Businesses:

Chicago, IL

ALA's Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services has compiled a selection of minority, women, and LGBTQ-owned businesses that attendees may wish to explore while in Chicago, Illinois. for the 2020 ALA Annual Conference and Exhibition.

We have focused primarily on places in close geographic proximity to the McCormick Place Convention Center so this is not an exhaustive list of the city's diversely-owned businesses. You can click on each of the pins to learn more about each business including directions.

Several other resources that may be of interest include the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce and the Chicago Cultural Alliance.

If there is a business or organization you think we should add to our map, please e-mail your suggestion to diversity@ala.org. The information gathered below was compiled from the Woods Fund Chicago, and Bossy Chicago.
