Share |




Program Overview

The Chicago Network is proud to present its fifth annual Future Leaders Program. The program is designed to offer female sophomores and juniors at UIC, Saint Xavier University and Dominican University exposure to different fields and industries. For the first time since its inception, the Program will now include a fourth school, which will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

This is a one-day career exportation opportunity that will take place on a day (selected by the host organization) during the week of May 7 or May 14 in 2018. It will not involve potential internship or job opportunities. Host organizations showcase their businesses, the variety of roles that support the organizations’ missions and how students might prepare for careers in the host companies’ fields.

Network Member and Host Company Commitments

  • Commit to host 12 students from one of our partner schools from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm (including lunch)
  • Designate an employee to serve as a program liaison (who will have some involvement on the day of the visit)
  • The TCN Network member (or the designated employee) should participate in a two-hour orientation from 11:00 am - 1:00 p.m. on Friday, April 6, 2018 and provide a 3-4 minute overview of the day's agenda. Schools will transport selected students to and from the orientation.



The orientation provides an opportunity for students to learn more about The Chicago Network and its Future Leaders Program, connect with members of the committee, representatives from each host organization, University officials and past participants. Students and representatives will be supplied with the information, support and resources necessary for successful company visits. Host organizations are encouraged to supply materials about their organizations at the orientation. The two-hour orientation will take place on Friday, April 6, 2018 from 11:00 am - 1:00 p.m. at Chase Tower, 10 S. Dearborn, Chicago, IL.

Company/Organization Visits

These occur during a single day selected by the host organization during the week of May 7 or May 14, 2018.
