IMPACT Fellows with Opening Reception
This week, the Chicago Urban League welcomed its Class of 2019 IMPACT Fellows with an opening reception hosted by Mesirow Financial . Scores of IMPACT alum attended to congratulate the 5th class of this program. Through  IMPACT , the Chicago Urban League strives to move the needle toward racial parity in leadership positions by developing and supporting emerging African American leaders.
Each year, IMPACT selects a cohort of around 30 African American professionals between the ages of 30-45 who hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and have at least seven years of increasingly responsible professional experience. Moreover, successful candidates have a strong, demonstrated track record of civic leadership. Selection to IMPACT is competitive and requires submitting letters of recommendation and engaging in a formal interview process. Prospective fellows are assessed based on personal and professional accomplishments, leadership potential, and commitment to civic engagement. The University of Chicago Booth School of Business serves as the educational partner for  IMPACT .
