City Impact Lab attendees come from all backgrounds, including government, the arts, neighborhoods, nonprofits, and business. Come connect with your future collaborators, mentors, and partners.
Make sure your webcam or phone/tablet camera is ready, as the program is interactive and engaging, which requires all participants to be on screen.
Each City Impact Lab breakfast begins with a presentation from a civic, business, and/or community leader who shares their personal experiences and strategies. We then conduct online activities that draw themes from the presentation and engage attendees on the challenges they are facing in their own work.
