About

Metro EDGE’s Emerge Summit is West Coast’s premier young professional (YP) event of the year.

Who Emerge is For

Are you a young professional seeking to expand your skillset and professional network? Are you on the job hunt or considering a career move? Then the Emerge Summit is for you. This premier event is ideal for the Sacramento YP looking to increase their marketability, step outside their comfort zone, and make new connections. We actively welcome all young professionals with any level of experience, in any industry, at any stage of their life.

What You Can Expect

The Emerge Summit is jam-packed with themed keynotes, breakout sessions, and activations meant to inspire, engage, and motivate you to say “challenge accepted.” An emcee keeps you connected to the day’s theme, while five dynamic speakers impart wisdom and exciting ideas from up on the stage. After, your day is filled with engaging breakout sessions. Curious to make a career jump? Nervous to be a first-time manager? Interested in joining a board? Eager to increase your knowledge on equity and inclusion? Every breakout session is hand-selected to inform each step of your journey as a regional young professional and features local leaders to keep you motivated every step of the way.

Round out your day with our favorite event – the Emerge Summit “after party”: EDGE 916. Open to all summit attendees, EDGE 916 allows you to unwind and reconnect with people you met throughout the day. Hang out and relax with food, cocktails, and conversation.

How You Can Prepare

Before the day of activities begins, be sure to polish your professional profiles. Tighten up your LinkedIn summaries, grab your business cards (QR codes count, too!), and practice your elevator pitch. Metro EDGE staff will be on standby all throughout the day to guide you to your next session, answer any questions, or connect you to resources. Also be sure to follow Metro EDGE on Instagram (@metroedge) to keep track of the day and get behind the scenes footage of your favorite speakers.
