081619 Climb1920

Rochester Chamber’s CLIMB, or Chamber Leadership Initiative: Mentoring for Business, has selected young leaders from 23 organizations, representing a wide variety of roles and industries in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region, to participate in the 2019-20 program. This marks the third cohort of young professionals to participate in CLIMB.

An experiential leadership development program, CLIMB provides young professionals with education, peer connections, and resources to help them ascend to new heights of leadership and success within their organizations and community.

Throughout the year-long experience, participants undergo an in-depth exploration of the regional economy, receive personalized development training, and are matched with an executive from the business community for a one-to-one mentoring relationship.

Upon successful completion of the program, CLIMB graduates are asked to join the Future Leaders Advisory Council (FLAC) to provide key insight and engagement with Rochester Chamber leadership.
