Young Professional Career Development

EMERGE a bi-monthly young professional career development program held on the third Tuesday of every month from 6:00-7:00 PM at rotating locations around Kansas City. EMERGE is led by and created for developing LGBTQ and ally leaders in the Chamber.

Sessions will focus on specific topics and combine guest presenters, panels, and group activities.

Program leaders will vet participant suggestions and incorporate them into future session content.
