Emerge Summit Celebrates 7th Year with a Virtual Forum on September 17

Spearheaded by Metro EDGE, a program of the Sacramento Metro Chamber Foundation, the Emerge Summit is a collaborative effort of regional organizations committed to supporting young professionals and their growth in the community. Hundreds of young professionals will attend a virtual personal and professional development conference on Thursday, September 17, from 8 a.m. to noon. The conference includes a half day of inspirational speeches, educational breakout sessions, opportunities to network with peers, and is highlighted by keynote speaker Marianna Sousa. This year’s theme — #Elevate — challenges Young Professionals to look at all aspects of their life career, community service, personal and professional relationships and find ways to #Elevate.

Metro EDGE continues to believe in the diversity and inclusion of all and is utilizing this year’s Emerge Summit as a platform to host conversations with community leaders and young professionals across the west coast. Even with this event at a distance, the Emerge Summit will bring young professionals a sense of belonging and are encouraged to work together to explore individual and community needs. the Emerge Summit is open to the public with general and/or group tickets available via Eventbrite.
