Each year through a competitive application process, the Council selects a cohort of high-performing, midcareer professionals from Chicago's business, cultural, civic, government, and academic sectors to participate in its Emerging Leaders Program. Selected individuals gain a deeper understanding of global issues and leadership skills to support Chicago and its communities in addressing global challenges, bolstering Chicago's position as a global city. 

As an Emerging Leader you will engage in leadership development and skills training, meet with global leaders, deepen your fluency in global issues, and explore policymaking through targeted site visits and special events. You will become part of Chicago's global network and make valuable personal and professional connections that will benefit your organization and your career advancement.
