Ideas with Impact: Emerging Leaders Confront Global Challenges

How should the next generation of leaders approach the interconnected challenges of the 21st century? Topics close to home and far – from homelessness to space mining – require thoughtful, creative proposals to make real change for today and in preparation for the future. In a unique programming offering, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs’ Emerging Leaders class of 2019 will draw from professional and personal experiences and share a series of short, dynamic presentations on an array of today’s critical issues and trends. This program is part of a yearlong celebration of the Emerging Leaders Program’s 10th anniversary.

There will be a reception for friends of the Emerging Leaders program immediately following the program. Register online today. 

Each year, the Council selects a highly competitive cohort of Chicago’s up-and-coming professionals to participate in its Emerging Leaders Program. Emerging Leaders become part of a network of globally fluent individuals who will continue to raise the bar for Chicago as an influential international city.
