In selecting class members, we look for a wide variety of diversity along as many dimensions as possible, including race, gender, age, and industry sector. We also consider each applicant’s background, civic experience, personal interests and philosophies.

 

 

Application Process

A committee of over 25 Leadership Board Members and other alumni works with our staff team to conduct applicant interviews, review essays and make a final class selection that optimizes the learning experience for participants. We are fortunate to receive more applications than seats available every year and we take the selection process very seriously.

The application period for the Class of 2022 is now closed. To learn more about the program and the application process for the Class of 2023, contact us at info@theleadership.org.
