Oneida Nation Chairman Tehassi Hill will deliver the opening address at the Northeast Wisconsin Leadership Summit at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Center in Green Bay on Tuesday, May 9.
The event the first of its kind in Northeast Wisconsin, intended to gather the region’s most influential people of color and allies for professional development, networking and community building. We’ll have more than a dozen panel discussions on business, leadership, education and much more!

Chairman Hill was born and raised on the Oneida reservation and graduated from the Oneida Nation High school.

He likes to spend his leisure time hunting, fishing and being actively engaged with his family and the greater community.
“As Chairman of the Oneida Nation, I feel the urgency to participate in the Leadership Summit. I expect to have great conversations about my lived experience and those of others,” Hill said. “Sharing our stories and experiences brings us together as a human family, renewing and creating bonds and friendships that break down barriers.”
