Attend Our Professional Development Speaker Series “Get Ahead by Giving Back”
United Way Young Leaders hosts professional development opportunities such as our “Get Ahead By Giving Back” Speaker Series throughout the year. Our speaker series are held at local establishments and provide a great way to be inspired and learn from local professionals and leaders in the community, and network with likeminded young professionals in a fun, relaxed environment. Each gathering focuses on a facet of our work at UWLC. For example, during the holiday months, we collect food for our “Feed Lake County” drive, and attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable goods as the “entry fee” to our social. Past speakers have included:
1. Timothy M. McCue, Senior Program Officer of the William J. and Dorothy K. O'Neil Foundation
