YP Summit Promise

For those in motion, it’s about change – about bending space and slicing time. It’s about professionalism and perspective. It’s about activating curiosity and cultivating community growth. It’s about everyone. It’s about you.

Your momentum is more than a straight line. You see the big picture, and it’s not in black and white. It’s drawn in vibrant color, with a broad brush – your brush – perfecting a palette shaded with individual innovation and tinted by collective creativity. You are a Young Professional, and you know how to color the world.

During the 2018 YP Summit, our promise is to activate curiosity and cultivate professional, personal and community growth through intentional development, inspiration and empowerment.

Over the course of the day, through change-making keynotes and empowering breakouts, we will celebrate differences, foster connections, grow inclusivity and initiate positive, community-enhancing change – all with the goal of bringing a new layer of vibrancy to our community.

We share a canvas. Let’s color the future of Greater Omaha together.

Greater Omaha YP. Vibrant. Passionate. United.
