Creating a Culture of Opportunity

featuring Keynote Speaker Phil Olaleye and celebrating the
2022 Top 10 in 10 Young Professionals to Watch


At the June Member Economic Luncheon, the Augusta Metro Chamber not only recognizes the current accomplishments and exemplary community involvement of each recipient through the 2022 Top 10 in 10 Young Professionals to Watch award, but aims to bring to light how these young leaders are "Creating a Culture of Opportunity" right here in our community.

As a recipient of Georgia Trend's 40 Under 40 award and the Executive Director of Next Generation Men & Women, whose mission it is to close the opportunity gap for under-resourced students, guest speaker Phil Olaleye will speak further on what it means to create a culture of opportunity and seize the opportunities life has to offer.

Phil Olaleye is the Executive Director of Next Generation Men & Women, an Education nonprofit closing the opportunity gap for under-resourced high school students in Atlanta through exposure and support to graduate prepared for college and career. Prior to that, Phil served as the Director of Performance Management at WorkSource Atlanta and as a United States Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines.

The 2022 Democratic nominee for Georgia State House District 59 (Atlanta), Phil is the former President of the Organized Neighbors of Summerhill, a 2021 Georgia Trend 40 Under 40 and 2020 Atlanta Business Chronicle 40 under Forty honoree. Phil graduated from Duke University in 2007 and received a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School of Government in 2014. Raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia, Phil is a proud son of Nigerian and Colombian immigrants. Phil is married to Sabrina Gómez and they live in Summerhill with their infant son, August.
