Pro Bono Partners

Civic Consulting Alliance recruits pro bono talent from the most respected companies in the world. Our teams are a “who’s who” of Chicago’s private sector. Our partners include financial service companies, law firms, management consultancies, consumer brands, corporations and everything in between. Partners bring different skills to projects, but share two common traits. First, they have some of the smartest minds and best talent in their respective industries. Second, they have a commitment to ensuring a bright future for all Chicagoans.

Why do these distinguished companies work with Civic Consulting Alliance? Because their contributions will work towards high-impact, high-accountability projects that are both well-defined and achievable. They know that Civic Consulting Alliance provides a unique platform to make an impact on the region that no individual, company – indeed no single sector – could achieve on its own.

Our partner companies also recognize that our projects provide a unique professional development opportunity for their employees. Pro bono staff working on a project with Civic Consulting are exposed to big challenges and important people. They learn new problem-solving tools and help implement change on a very large scale and on the most important civic issues.
