C-Change and Cincy Next“My C-Change experience has been rewarding and beneficial to my leadership and networking development. Andrea and her team do an excellent job at planning informative and engaging sessions as well as providing knowledgeable field experts to cover the topic of discussion.

 

Also, I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with other young professionals to support a Non-Profit on a key project. This has challenged me to think and problem-solve differently. Lastly, I’ve made long-lasting connections with influential leaders through the C-Change program”.
