Indianapolis, Ind. — Achieve, in partnership with The Case Foundation, has announced information for MCON14, the nation’s premier conference for corporate, cause and public leaders who work with Millennial employees and constituents. The 2014 conference, located at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, will gather leading experts June 18-19, 2014, to explore the latest trends and research on how Millennials prefer to use their talents and researches for good.
MCON14 is a two-day experience where leaders examine how the next generation is redefining the ways they tackle community issues, build movements, and use their talents to inspire peers and create change. With captivating speakers, short films, and engaging networking opportunities, thousands of people from across the country are expected to participate online and in-person.
“MCON14 is not your typical conference.

It’s perfect for individuals and companies working with Millennial employees or constituents in both the corporate and cause settings.”

- Culture – How organizations and companies can refine culture in order to build stronger businesses
- Relationships – How interpersonal communication and technologies build transparent relationships among constituents and consumers
- Movements – How movements are created by an interconnected community and a generation focused on a common purpose
- Resources – How to use talent and financial resources to build stronger products, services, and human-centered organizations
