What is the Emerging Leaders Society?

First and foremost, the Emerging Leaders Society (ELS) stands by the mission of Spokane County United Way - to mobilize our community to create measurable results that improve people's lives. The ELS was established by Spokane County United Way in 2013 to provide early-to mid career professionals an opportunity to develop leadership skills, network with community-minded individuals, and elevate their commitment to making a difference in the community.

United Way's Role

The goal is to create lasting changes that will help people achieve their potential, increase financial stability and opportunity, and improve health- and as emerging leaders, we seek to cultivate the next generation with the tools they need to continue tackling these critical issues. Spokane County United Way saw the need to educate, develop, and invest in young professionals and the role they play in the future success of the Spokane community, thus the Emerging Leaders Society was born.
