First Ever ELI ELI Virtual Networking Reception


June 25, 2020


Zoom meeting

An ELI ELI Program

For the month of June’s Environmental Law Institute Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI ELI) program, ELI Board Member and Leadership Council Member Kevin Poloncarz provided TED Talk style opening remarks. He explored finding your practice in environmental law.

Whether in an NGO, government, academia or a firm, ELI ELI Leaders have begun to demonstrate leadership and gain distinction in the practice of environmental law and policy.  How does one build a network and reputation that helps you advance? How to find work that is both professionally and personally satisfying? How to strike the right work-life balance? How to take control of the work you’re doing rather than let the work control you? Kevin explored these issues and more before participants continued these conversations in the breakout group setting.

Following the conclusion of Kevin’s remarks, participants participated in regional-based virtual breakout rooms for networking with fellow Emerging Leaders. Each breakout room was facilitated by the ELI ELI Steering Committee and Leaders were encouraged to network with and get to know their fellow Leaders, fostering new relationships in a pivotal time for environmental leadership.

ELI ELI programs are for the exclusive benefit of Emerging Leaders.
