SITE Chapter Excellence Award in Young Leaders

The SITE Chapter Excellence Award in Young Leaders is offered to a Chapter which has supported a strong and vibrant young leader community through various chapter initiatives, with a focus on personal growth and development of these young leaders within the larger SITE community.

Accepting on behalf of the winner, SITE Chicago, was Colleen Brzozowski, 2020 Chapter President and the board.

SITE Chicago’s young leader program includes a combination of separate young leader engagements, along with intentional interactions between junior and senior industry professionals. 

These include private meet-ups pre or post chapter events, along with opportunities for intimate conversations that are less intimidating for young leaders to participate. In addition, the chapter offers a strong mentor program. Through these initiatives, SITE Chicago is proud to have increased young leader membership by almost 4% year over year and touts a consistent representation of 20% of young leaders at all chapter events.
