2017 • 1 year • Chicago Commitment
The Chicago Urban League was incorporated in June 1917, as one of the first affiliates of the National Urban League. Its mission is to work for economic, educational, and social progress for African-Americans. The Chicago Urban League established a program designed to create a pipeline of informed, motivated, perceptive, authentic, and connected talent (or, “IMPACT”), who will become the next generation of Chicago leaders. This award to the IMPACT Leadership Development Program supports the creation of new course curriculum and an inaugural, citywide networking event for Chicago leaders of color.
