The Chicago Urban League’s IMPACT Leadership Development Program is now accepting applications for its Class of 2021.  All applications must be submitted by the new deadline of May 26, 2020.

IMPACT was created to support the professional and personal development of emerging African-American leaders in Chicago by preparing them for increasingly responsible leadership roles in private, public and nonprofit organizations and their boards. The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is our educational partner for IMPACT and provides academic leadership training sessions at the Gleacher Center, its downtown campus.

This powerful program also includes modules on Chicago history and current issues, formal individual leadership assessments, and connecting with senior leaders who serve as mentors for IMPACT Fellows throughout the nine-month program.
