Twelve students at the Chicago Network’s Future Leaders Program recently represented Saint Xavier University (SXU) on Monday, May 8 and Tuesday, May 9. SXU, Dominican University, and University of Illinois-Chicago have all partnered with the Chicago Network, a group of senior women business leaders, to share various career experiences with 36 young women. Students from SXU visited Heartland Alliance for Human Needs and Human Rights, the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), and the Hyatt Corporation.
The students’ involvement in the Program was featured on CBS 2 Chicago’s 6 p.m. broadcast on May 8 and 5 and 6 a.m. broadcasts on May 9.
The SXU students selected to participate in the program are: Jill Augustine; Lisette Carrera; Maribeth Hampton; Alexis Harrison; Courtney Joyce; Carleigh Kemp; Diana Magana; Molly Rademacher; Aleta Riley-Tellis; Jillian Siemiawski; Kailey Tassone; and Deana Watson
Students who attend the Future Leaders Program are given the opportunity not only to visit the host companies, but also to partake in an interactive schedule, which include learning about the industry, touring the space, and reviewing the necessary qualifications of that career. The program is meant to empower women in becoming leaders.
The Future Leaders Program accepted applications from sophomore and junior university students. Requirements consisted of a resume, academic and extracurricular information, and a description of career goals.
Check back on Tuesday, May 30 and read a student’s perspective on the Program!
