About this Event

Returning for its 7th year, the Ignite520 Leadership Conference is a professional development and community involvement conference for young professionals, age 21-45. The conference helps to attract, retain, and promote young professionals by creating roots for them to engage within our community, and foster new skills to help them in a competitive workplace.

The last couple years have presented a lot of social, community, political, and professional change. Whether in our careers or in our community, we now have an incredible opportunity to ask and answer, “What Comes Next?” This Ignite520 will be a vibrant gathering of Tucson’s young professional community to envision, grow, connect, and begin taking steps to shape the most inclusive, prosperous, and innovative Greater Tucson possible. Designed around our Team focus areas, we will look through this lens at Advocacy, Arts and Culture, Professional Development, READI, Philanthropy, and the Nonprofit and Public Sectors in our community.


Be inspired and encouraged by fellow young professionals from around the region, innovating, serving, building and creating!

  • Two days of networking opportunities, personal & professional development, and growth.
  • Musical performances, food, conference swag, and more!
  • Sessions from rising stars, casting vision for Tucson’s best possible future
