The 2011 Global Instrument of Change Conference & Scholarship Luncheon is organized under the auspices of the Global Instrument of Change (GIC) Initiative, a community of local and global changemakers that brings together people from different backgrounds, race, color, age and religion, to share experiences, ideas and insights, learn from their challenges and obstacles and provide access to amazing connections and opportunities.
The goals for this year’s conference are to:
Provide participants with knowledge on how to secure scholarships, and land their dream internships and jobs
Provide minorities, international students and young immigrants practical examples, insights, advice and resources on how to identify and take advantage of opportunities available to them both academically and professionally.
Inspire and challenge participants by sharing the success stories of icons in our generation and provide insights on how our audience can make an impact in their families, local communities, and mostly importantly in their native countries.
Give participants the opportunity to win prizes such as Kindles, Gift Cards, Books and many more.
Opening Keynote Speaker:
Sarah Pang, Co-chair of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s transition team. Recently named one of Crain’s Chicago Business “Women to Watch: 2011”
