Founded in 2011, the Young Leaders Conference is an annual gathering of emerging leaders and professionals from diverse backgrounds in business, government, non-profit, and academia. 

This year the conference will focus on the challenges and opportunities for transportation and infrastructure as we deal with short- and mid-term climate change.

Through keynote speakers and panel discussions, the conference will explore how the answers to these challenges and opportunities are shaping our lives and whether we can prosper as the global climate changes.
Young Leaders are World Affairs Council members actively engaged in knowledge sharing and skill-building, as they become the
business, government, non-profit, and academic leaders of tomorrow.
