Event description

Description

Created by hip-hop artist and actor, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, also known as Common - The Common Ground Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to building future leaders equipped to ignite change in their classrooms, communities, and the world. Each year, we host our Youth Business and Leadership Conference which narrates the inspiring journeys of champions, while documenting a blueprint for success. This signature event which borrows the acronym S.T.E.A.M. not only explores careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics but also discovers careers in Sports, Travel, Entertainment Advertising & Marketing. Themed Tech Kinects, this year’s one-day forum will take place on Friday, October 27, 2017 – and assemble more than 300 high school students at Google’s Chicago headquarters, located at 320 N. Morgan.

Technology is the global thread connecting consumers, communities, and countries. Evolving daily, the new technology topography has disrupted normal – creating new techniques for delivering information, attracting customers, friends and followers. The information highway has transformed into a runway, where innovative ideas and concepts take flight. Tech Kinects – The 2017 Youth Business and Leadership Conference - will examine and demonstrate how technology surrounds us, and is connected to every aspect of daily life. Our goal is to equip students with an understanding of a diverse marketplace, the power of extended networks and opportunity for competitive advantage for the future.

The Business Conference will feature TECHTalks short TEDX-like Talks, where 3-5 presenters individually illustrate their industries in a short yet engaging monologue and then collectively host a brief Q&A at the very end of their session. The conference will also feature live demonstrations and activations, that offer students a hands-on experience with various careers. Lastly, the conference will provide pre-selected schools around the world with a link to view certain sessions, via live stream. For additional details visit www.commongroundfoundation.org
