President of Junto Global, Parker Harris, will be attending MCON 2014 as a guest of the Case Foundation.
“MCON14 is not your typical conference. It’s an experience of thought leadership, learning, and connections,”
Set for June 18-19 of this year at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, MCON14 will focus on creating movements and building culture for the next generation of cause work. MCON14 is a two-day experience where corporate, cause, and public leaders see how the next generation is redefining how to tackle community issues, build movements to create change, and use their talents and resources to inspire peers. With engaging speakers and discussion panels, MCON14 is the premier conference for cause and Millennial engagement. This year, the event will be streamed online in addition to its location at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
"I am honored to be a guest of the Case Foundation to MCON14. The Case Foundation is a catalyst for convening and fearless innovation around social good and I look forward to building on their success. I look forward to collaborating with some of the nation's top millennial talent at MCON14."
