A lot has changed since my team at Millennial Ventures hosted our first Millennial Leadership Summit last April. This year’s event is happening on Friday, April 27 at Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business, which has stepped up to support the development of the city’s millennial leaders.
The summit is now positioned under our newly founded nonprofit, Center for Millennial Engagement, which was established to address two pressing questions impacting the region’s workforce:
- Where do millennials go for mentoring, coaching and professional development?
- Where do business leaders, HR professionals and managers of millennials go to gain insights on how to better develop, engage, and retain their millennial talent?
This year’s summit has been refreshed with a new name, the People Power Summit, and promises to provide the same high-energy masterclasses, and high-impact networking as last year.
For those who are unaware, the People Power Summit is a one-day leadership development event aimed at reinvigorating Philadelphia’s emerging leaders. Our goal is to invest in the city’s top millennial talent, while also sending a message that millennials are doing good work within the private and public sector. Employers are registering their teams like crazy, but you can also register yourself to attend.
Tickets cost between $147–$247 and are already sold out, but if you want to come, we’re offering a special deal to the Technical.ly team.
