Chicago H1B Connect

World Business Chicago brought together the business community in a concerted effort to support H1-B visa holders negatively impacted by job cuts in tech. Our intention is to assist these highly skilled workers in navigating the challenges they face during these difficult times by offering support, including a job board listing open roles available in the greater Chicagoland region to H1-B visa holders, and to demonstrate Chicago's commitment as an affirming and welcoming city for immigrants.

Dear CEO

In a nod to old-school letter writing campaigns, World Business Chicago sent out letters to 300+ CEOs of Fortune 500 companies located in states where abortion rights were restricted or revoked following the U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.


In Chicago We Believe

Chicago respects and welcomes LGBTQ+ people. The campaign launched as both Ohio and Texas eye legislation similar to Florida's "Parental Rights in Education" bill — dubbed "Don't Say Gay" by critics — that prohibits school discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity for young students.


100 Reasons

We are proud of our city’s many strengths and attributes. Our mission is to drive inclusive, equitable economic development, job creation, and access to opportunity. In the course of our work, we maintain the following list of 100+ reasons #WhyChicago is a great city for business.


Dear Texas                                 

Chicago takes aim at Texas’ new social policies with a full-page ad in Sunday’s Dallas Morning News, urging companies uncomfortable with the state’s recently enacted abortion and voting laws to head to the Windy City.
