Ellen Alberding encourages Chicago leaders to make it possible for all voices to be heard in the most powerful way possible.

Joyce Foundation President Ellen S. Alberding spoke to the City Club of Chicago on September 17, 2014 and encouraged the city’s leaders to use new technologies to tell their stories and, more importantly, hear from Chicagoans who they don’t regularly connect with.
