LGW Goes to Chicago

August 2, 2017

Mark your calendars, and join us in celebrating almost two years of the enriching partnership between Leadership Greater Chicago and Leadership Greater Washington during our next Leadership Exchange with the Fellows of the Windy City!

This August 2-4, LGW members are invited to reconvene in Chicago, IL for another multi-session program crafted to encourage members to connect with Chicago’s top leaders over shared issues including economic and workforce development, immigration, education, architecture designed for the community, the costs of segregation, and ensuring public safety through reduction of crime and violence.

On top of a private welcoming reception with live music, opportunities to connect will include several shared meals with LGChicago’s Fellows, a VIP tour of Wrigley Field with some of the Chicago Cubs’ leaders, and another heated contest between the Washington Nationals and the recently-crowned World Series champs. Let’s see just who will be ‘Flying the W’ this August!
