About the Development Leadership Consortium
The mission of the Development Leadership Consortium (DLC) is to mentor new fundraising professionals and to engage them throughout their careers, encouraging their growth into committed, connected leaders. Since its establishment, the DLC has grown from a small series with a focus on Chicago-based foundations to a volunteer-run 501c3 organization that offers two unique and highly competitive fellowship programs and offers a number of professional development events throughout the year. Their next event, the 2017 Philanthropy Forecast, will feature a panel consisting of Robin M. Steans of the Steans Family Foundation, Ric Estrada of Metropolitan Family Services, and Greg Cameron of the Joffrey Ballet.
