Founded after the 1968 riots that followed the tragic death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Chicago United, an advocacy organization working to build sustainable diversity in business, has vowed to promote multiracial leadership in business to advance parity in economic opportunity. Under Castillo’s leadership, the organization has launched nationally recognized programs including the annual Changing Color of Leadership Conference and Bridge Awards Dinner, the Business Leaders of Color publications, the Transformative Inclusion Members Series, which presents national thought leaders in diversity and inclusion research, and many more. Recognized for her advocacy of multiracial leadership, Castillo was named among Today’s Chicago Woman’s “100 Women of Influence” in 2013 and is listed among the 2013 Crain’s Chicago Business “Who’s Who in Chicago Business.”

Prior to joining Chicago United, Castillo spent more than 20 years in advertising and promotion as president of Monarch Marketing Group.
