Chicago Global Shapers
A globally recognized group of young leaders empowered by the World Economic Forum to improve the lives of Chicagoans.
We're more than a cohort of young professionals committed to changing Chicago for the better. Whether through targeted service events, city excursions, weekend working sessions, or impromptu coffees, we've grown into a tight-knit group of advisers and friends.
Get to know us some more
Our community is built around complimentary skills & experiences: we make a difference in tech, finance, government, entrepreneurship, and everything in between.
We are Chicago: we're Hyde Park academics, Lake View cyclists, Downtown marathoners, Logan Square coffee obsessives, Pilsen street art enthusiasts, Wicker Park beer snobs, and Edgewater historians.
We hail from Asia to Africa, have gladly welcomed transfers from other Hubs (Italy, Jamaica, Israel, and India), and happily host visiting Shapers from around the world - most recently Mexico, Canada, and China.
