Community Leaders Conference
The Community Leaders Conference is the leading edge of United Way’s global movement. It's the connective tissue of 1,800 United Way communities that, when we are working together as a network, form the most significant lever to create community change in the world. Executives and volunteers from Mumbai to Memphis and everywhere in between will convene to share the opportunities, struggles and promising practices that are inspiring and moving our work forward. We will hear from leaders in government, labor, foundation and corporate space, as well as thought leaders in the sector and award winning NGO & United Way leaders. It’s the event where the true scale and scope of the United Way network comes to life. If there is only one event you participate in this year, make it United Way's premier leadership event for leaders by leaders, the Community Leaders Conference.
MONDAY, MAY 9 - THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2016
