Leadership Greater Chicago
Leadership Greater Chicago (LGC) is Chicago's premiere civic leadership development program. We convene, connect and mobilize the region’s most promising leaders around key socioeconomic issues through dynamic education and experiential activities. These diverse individuals represent the most prominent corporate, nonprofit, government and education organizations. Since 1985, LGC has developed more than 1,000 executive leaders through our flagship Fellows Program – an intensive 10-month program that provides the foundation for a lifelong commitment to civic engagement. Additionally, LGC has invested an estimated $5 million to build capacity in the corporate, nonprofit, government and education sectors. LGC creates connectivity among our Fellows to positively impact not only themselves but their employees, their constituents, their clients, their neighbors and their families. This connectivity is the backbone and strength of the LGC network, enabling leaders to reach out to each other across sectors based on the common goal of changing our region for the better.
