Emerging Leaders' Perspectives on Global Cities by The Chicago Council

Members of the Council’s Emerging Leaders Class of 2016 will discuss their reports on the intersecting challenges facing global cities. Each year the Council selects the best and brightest mid-career leaders in Chicago to join its Emerging Leaders Program. The program culminates with participants reporting on issues they identify as critical and sharing their findings and recommendations with Council audiences. This is the first of three evenings of presentations from the Emerging Leader Class of 2016.
