For two months in a row, seats at Network @ Night have been hard to come by as young professionals seize opportunities to hear from top community leaders. In February, YP's heard from Living Lands and Water Founder, Chad Pregracke on his journey from vision to making an impact. In March, inspiring thought leader, Reverend Dwight Ford, pastor of Grace City Church in Rock Island and Q2030 Advisory Council and Steering Committee member gave a impassioned presentation on how young leaders can bring a movement to hope and life to others. Both speakers were recently featured in the media for their efforts in philanthropy and for being leaders in the region.
The next YPQC events will be Network @ Night at the Putnam Museum on April 6, and Network @ Noon at the Boys and Girls Club of the Mississippi Valley - Teen Center. Or, if you're an executive interested in new and innovative ways to attract millenials and manage a multigenerational workforce, don't miss Executives Club on April 7 featuring Amy Kristof-Brown, Chair of the Department of Management and Organizations with the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business. These events represent one of the ways we work to attract and retain top young talent in the region and help employers reach their workforce needs.
