The Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce selected young leaders from 23 organizations to participate in its 2019-20 Chamber Leadership Initiative: Mentoring for Business.
This third cohort represents a wide variety of roles and industries in Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.
CLIMB, an experiential leadership development program, provides young professionals with education, peer connections and resources to help them ascend to new heights of leadership and success within their organizations and community.
Throughout the yearlong experience, participants explore the regional economy, receive personalized development training and are matched with an executive from the business community for a one-to-one mentoring relationship.
CLIMB graduates are asked to join the Future Leaders Advisory Council to provide insight and engagement with Rochester Chamber leadership.
