WHAT IS EMERGE?
Engage with Leaders and Entrepreneurs within Lexington
EMERGE is a full-day event that brings together entrepreneurs, emerging leaders, business professionals, and community members on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at the Lexington Convention Center.
By unifying Kentucky’s emerging leaders, we are empowering our future leaders to participate through networking, collaboration, and opportunities to plug into the community, and a chance for their voice to be heard. Our communities stand to benefit through better opportunities, more diverse and engaged professionals, and ultimately a stronger economy.
This exciting professional development opportunity offers networking, access to community leaders, and education through breakout sessions in a variety of tracks, such as professional, personal, and community.
