Your First Year
Throughout your class year, you'll participate with three amazing conferences with a cohort of about 30 women. Our conferences are designed to educate, energize, and connect. Along the way you'll build a lifelong network of inspiring women who will become friends, mentors, and associates.
Our conference series includes three annual events unlike any other. Our conferences give attendees unique experiences focused on government, personal development, and the marketplace. Graduates walk away with the energy and ideas needed to be a catalyst for positive change right away.
When you graduate from the program, you become an alum of a wonderful organization! Become an LI Fellow by paying annual dues, and you'll enjoy all the benefits of Leadership Illinois. Plus, attend alumni dinners and annual meetings to reconnect with your fellowship class and expand your network.
