The New England Council Rising Stars Network was established to harness the potential of emerging professionals across the New England region. Our mission is clear: to connect, empower, and elevate young leaders, forging lasting relationships and driving career growth while enriching our regional landscape.
Rising Stars Network aims to build a vibrant community that brings together young professionals from our members’ various industries and backgrounds. Through networking events and other professional development opportunities such as our “Guiding Stars” series, our primary objectives are to:
- Forge Valuable Connections: Our events open doors to connections that can lead to new career paths, mentorship, and personal growth, anchoring top-tier talent within New England.
- Celebrate Diversity and Inclusion: Embracing diversity is key. The Rising Stars Network ensures events welcome a wide range of young professionals from member companies, knowing that different perspectives lead to innovation and teamwork.
- Unlock Resources: Our events offer resources like career tips, and the latest industry news to keep members informed and ready for new opportunities.
Fostering Connections and Maximizing NEC Membership Value
In addition to the myriad of benefits already provided to Council members, the Rising Stars Network presents exclusive opportunities that are specially designed for young professionals—these opportunities serve as a tool to help them fully leverage their membership and derive the greatest possible value from it.
“Guiding Stars” Series
In addition to larger networking events and mixers, Guiding Stars is a key component of the New England Council’s Rising Stars Network, aimed at giving young professionals from our member organizations the opportunity to connect with industry leaders through mentorship roundtables. These sessions are interactive and allow for direct engagement, offering a platform for in-depth discussions and personal advice crucial for career growth. The initiative’s goal is to provide a supportive environment for emerging talents to receive guidance and insights from experienced professionals, enhancing their career development.
