Leadership Greater Chicago (LGC) announced today the 2017 Class of LGC Fellows, which includes our very own Executive Director Rob Rose!. This select group of 38 accomplished and diverse individuals represents a cross-section of professionals from the corporate, nonprofit, government, and education sectors. They share the goal of effecting real change in the community.
Selected from more than 120 highly qualified candidates nominated by their employers, the Fellows will engage in a 10-month program where they will be immersed in key socioeconomic issues facing our city and the region, including education, economic development, healthcare, housing and infrastructure, criminal justice, and race. Additionally, the Fellows will have an opportunity to engage in small group projects of their choice to directly address a challenge or need in the community. These projects will be informed by the information and ideas shared in the classroom, engagement with other Fellows, and personal experiences.
Fellows selected for Chicago’s premiere program for developing civic leaders have demonstrated remarkable professional achievement early in their careers, a commitment to their community, and the potential to influence effective change.
The 2017 Fellows advanced through a highly competitive selection process, including a comprehensive written application and interviews with graduates of the LGC Fellows Program. The LGC Board of Directors approved the selection of this year’s class.
“The LGC Fellows Program is rooted in the belief that a small, diverse group of committed leaders can change the world,” said Maria Wynne, Chief Executive Officer of Leadership Greater Chicago. “The hallmarks of our program are access to world class thought leaders, priceless community experiences, and the peer learning and friendships that take shape among the Class. The personal connections and sense of responsibility with which they emerge drive their lifelong commitment to effect real change in the region.”
