Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Jan. 16.
C-Change, a HYPE (Harnessing Young Professional Energy) program produced by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, announced a new and diverse group of 55 young leaders representing 53 regional businesses that will participate in Class 14. C-Change is a year-long leadership-development program for emerging leaders in the Cincinnati region.
“These young leaders will have the opportunity to widen their networks, become more engaged and prepare for important leadership roles in our community,” said Marcus Thompson, HYPE programs leader for the Cincinnati Chamber. “The lasting impact they will have as a result of this program will further enhance the vibrancy of our region.”
“We’re very excited about providing visibility to 55 more advanced leaders to the myriad opportunities to have impact and make change in our region,” said Jordan Vogel, vice president of Talent Initiatives for the Cincinnati Chamber. “The purpose is to connect our C-Change leaders more deeply to the community and to each other so that they can channel their energy and talents into solving our region’s most urgent challenges.”
Since 2006, the year-long leadership development program has connected more than 650 young professionals to each other and the community. An opening reception for C-Change Class 14 is today, January 16, 4-7 p.m., at the Cincinnati Chamber’s 3 East Fourth Street Learning Center.
