On the Scene
The Ounce of Prevention President Diana Rauner. 0

Was that a dig at Trump–or Rauner?

February 6th, 2017

Ulta CEO Mary Dillon led an interesting discussion the other day about leadership and work-life balance.

But before the women business leaders got to the heart of the conversation, Dillon asked panelist Diana Rauner to address the “unexpected” political climate that we’re facing these days.

Rauner is first lady of Illinois and president of the Ounce of Prevention Fund, which sponsored the event.

“These are challenging times,” Rauner said. “And it is a very distracting and disorienting time. But we know that the work we do is a long game. The Ounce has been around for 25 years…we have to keep focused on the future and we have to be focused on what we know matters and where we know you can have an impact.”

Robin Robinson, the award-winning broadcaster now working as community affairs director for the Chicago Police Department, was quick to respond.
