Investing in Our Youth, Investing in Our City

Presented by Emerging Leaders Chicago

Join the Chicagoland Chamber for a discussion that will illuminate the path towards building a more inclusive and innovative Chicago through youth investment. Our distinguished panelists will share insights on the strategic importance of early investment in high school programs and the positive ripple effects it has on the talent pipeline, public safety, and diversity within our city.

To ensure that these efforts are meaningful and impactful, successful companies are approaching high school engagement with intent for exposure and access. Hear directly from company leaders and community partners about their efforts to transform the future workforce and prepare youth to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.
