Upcoming Events

Leadership Greater Chicago offers regional dialogues, workshops, and social events that create networking and educational opportunities, and celebrate the positive changes Fellows achieve in our community.

Celebrate Leaders
Mark your calendars for LGC's annual Celebrate Leaders benefit! Join us as we recognize and celebrate LGC Fellows, community leaders, and organizations for making a significant and transformative impact on the Greater Chicago region. The 2018 celebration will be extra special as we mark the 35th Anniversary of our founding by The Chicago Community Trust. Proceeds from this important evening support LGC’s Signature Fellows Program and our efforts to build Chicago’s civic leadership pipeline.
Leadership Breakfast: The Intersection of Profit and Inclusion
We are seeing an encouraging trend towards improved diversity and inclusion in the workplace, but when it comes to business the bottom line is what drives most decisions. Join us for an unplugged conversation with President of Ariel Investments Mellody Hobson about the business case for inclusion and equity, how far we have come in diversifying board rooms across the city and the country, and the work that remains ahead. Moderated by Connie Lindsey (Fellow since 2001), Executive Vice President and Head of Corporate Social Responsibility and Global Diversity & Inclusion at Northern Trust.
Leadership Breakfast: Civic Leadership Today | A Corporate View
It is often said that in Chicago, corporate leaders don’t stand out by engaging in civic interests and causes, they stand out by not getting involved in civic life. Join us to hear from some of our region’s top executives on the connections between corporate needs and civic leadership, and the special kinds of relationships nurtured between its private and public sectors. Speakers will include President and Chief Executive Officer of ComEd Ann Pramaggiore (Fellow since 2009).
Fellows Recognition Ceremony
Join us for our annual Fellows Recognition Ceremony as we celebrate our 2018 Fellows and inaugurate the incoming Class of 2019 in the company of our LGC network of Fellows, board members, partners, nominators, and sponsors.
