About LGC


A Community of Change Agents

Leadership Greater Chicago (LGC) is a 30-year-old nonprofit organization that cultivates Chicago’s business, public and civic leaders through a deeper understanding of the issues facing our community and each other, helping them to build a better Chicago.

The LGC Fellows Program provides a foundation for a lifelong commitment to civic engagement by creating awareness of key issues facing the Chicago region and challenges leaders to bring about positive change in the community.

LGC is a partnership between:

  • Fellows who participate in a 10-month program to study the challenges facing the region, and become part of a diverse network of leaders working to make a difference
  • Sponsors who nominate emerging leaders in their companies and organizations and give them the professional development experience of a lifetime.
  • The community, which contributes to the education of Chicago's emerging leaders and benefits from their long term connections, knowledge and committed leadership.
