We are excited to announce that Primera President & CEO, Erin Inman, has been honored by Leadership Greater Chicago (LGC) to serve as an influential Chicago leader for the 2024 Cohort of The Daniel Burnham Fellowship. The Daniel Burnham Fellowship strives to fulfill LGC’s continuing mission to achieve bold and innovative change within the region. The esteemed civic fellowship selected 26 top executives and high-impact local leaders for its sixth cohort. The distinguished group includes Chicagoland executives from corporate, nonprofit, city government, media, arts, and legal fields.
The Fellowship is a strategic partnership designed for executives to impact the local workforce and economic stories in their roles as dedicated changemakers. The Fellowship thoughtfully connects leaders with the civic spirit of the city. By understanding a city’s history and future growth, significant relationships are cultivated in the Greater Chicago area, resulting in driven public engagement and cross-sector collaborations focused on growing a more dynamic, inclusive, and united community.
“I feel privileged to join this year’s cohort,” explains Inman. “I’m looking forward to connecting and collaborating with like-minded peers that share a passion for positively impacting the city that Primera has served for close to 40 years.”
To date, the LGC has joined forces with more than 120 high-impact leaders, accomplishing a wide array of civic efforts including funding investments, public policy, food distribution, community investments, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, and COVID-19 relief efforts.
