  • Inspire emerging leaders to return to their Ys with a renewed spirit and passion for their work, self-development, and professional Y network.    
  • Opportunity for part-time staff to attend a conference that’s not as costly as General Assembly, yet provides equal levels of education and learning opportunities.
  • EMLE is designed for all staff of color (part-time, exempt, and non-exempt), it is also recommended to anyone who works with diverse populations, or desires to further their personal development.
  • Emerging staff of color have the opportunity to connect with peers, mentors and Y leaders from across the Movement.
  • Build awareness of and engagement with the Movement's multicultural leadership pipeline.
  • Promote new and existing career development resources to advance the professional growth of emerging Y leaders.  
  • PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY: This is an opportunity for staff to be on a conference planning committee. More details to come on this!
  • Being on an EMLE Planning Committee can count towards the Global Leadership Certificate (GLC).
  • Broaden your professional network.
  • ALL staff are welcome and encouraged to attend.  
  • And much more!
