Future Leaders Program

The next generation of women leaders starts here

Our Future Leaders Program supports the Chicago Network’s goal of developing the next generation of women leaders by providing outstanding sophomore and junior female college students at partnering schools a hands-on opportunity to explore career paths in the business and nonprofit sectors.

We contribute to closing the “achievement gap” by offering programs for Young Women Leaders that offer insight and guidance from our Members and our broader community.

What does it take to be a leader?

“Leadership is not a person or a position. It is a complex moral relationship between people based on trust, obligation, commitment, emotion, and a shared vision of the good.”

Program Highlights

TCN’s Future Leaders Program was highlighted in an article published by the University of Illinois at Chicago, one of TCN’s partner universities. The article entitled, “The Power of Outside Perspective for Career Services,” discussed how the partnership between TCN and UIC exemplifies an approach that other career services can embrace to garner outside perspectives on careers and higher education that meet the needs of today’s students.
