Rising Leaders

A Joint AmCham-US Embassy Initiative

Entrepreneurs. Student Leaders. Young Professionals. Rising Leaders, a joint AmCham – US Embassy program, brings them all together in an innovative annual program that connects promising young talent with our international member company professionals.

At the core of Rising Leaders is an unshakable commitment to diversity and a focus on empowering young people from underrepresented groups. Selected program participants include Norwegians from minority backgrounds, immigrants, and young leaders with extensive international experience.

Through dedicated sessions and regular gatherings, aspiring professionals collaborate with member company heads, political leaders, and government officials to develop the skills necessary to thrive in today’s global business environment. Member companies, in turn, engage future talent while demonstrating their unique company cultures and values.

US Embassy AmCham

Connecting Member Companies with Promising Young Leaders from Diverse Backgrounds

The limited size of the Rising Leaders group is arguably its greatest strength – allowing program participants to network, connect, and explore careers with AmCham’s diverse range of member companies. The programs meetings go beyond the typical lecture and meet & greet format of the traditional young professional program by including consulting sessions, roundtable discussions, and workshops led by member company representatives.

As a participating company, you’ll have the opportunity to highlight your organization’s strengths, in addition to the opportunity to build relationships with our diverse group of program participants.
