Scott Santi, Chairman & CEO, Illinois Tool Works; Jim Zallie, President & CEO, Ingredion; Jennifer Steans, President & CEO, Financial Investments Corporation; Andrea Zopp, President & CEO, World Business Chicago. Moderated by Ivo H. Daalder; Samuel C. Scott III.

CEOs, heads of office, and other select C-suite executives from partner companies are invited to participate in a new series of exclusive roundtable discussions that will address the private sector’s role in combating racism. This three-part series will address the urgency and responsibility facing companies to expand on and build out diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. On October 22, Illinois Tool Works chairman and CEO Scott Santi, Financial Investments Corporation president and CEO Jennifer Steans, Ingredion president and CEO Jim Zallie, and World Business Chicago president and CEO Andrea Zopp will join us to share concrete steps their organizations have taken in the DEI space and give recommendations for companies to expand their own initiatives. Each program will include active participation and discussion with peer senior executives.

This series will be conducted alongside our Corporate Leadership Breakfast series. Cohosted by Council President Ivo H. Daalder and Samuel C. Scott III, these executives-only meetings provide an opportunity for business leaders to participate in timely, business-relevant global policy discussions and hear directly from the Council’s bench of experts. They also provide a platform to showcase executive leadership in a room of peers, customers, service providers, and clients. From NAFTA to national security, immigration to climate change – insights from these discussions offer companies the competitive edge they need to thrive in an increasingly global economy.
