New York City Chapter

Building a cross-sector, diverse coalition of emerging leaders throughout NYC

NLC NYC’s mission is to build a pipeline of diverse leaders in every sector of society who will create a more progressive New York City. To get there, we unite emerging leaders from every industry (beyond politics and government) and outside of traditional power structures, in order to form a strong progressive network in NYC. Through this coalition, NLC NYC has established a definitive voice in many of NYC’s most consequential public affairs.

13

As one of NLC’s first chapters, NLC NYC has operated for 13 years.

250

Since our founding, we’ve trained over 250 place-based leaders in NYC.

“New Leaders Council brings together individuals who want to re-imagine a world that is just, fair, and equitable. From the seminars, trainings and skills gained, we are on track to achieve the world we deserve.
