Who We Are

Developing more effective civic leaders in the Baltimore region.

Founded through the vision of the Greater Baltimore Committee in 1983, The Leadership is an independent, not-for-profit organization committed to strengthening Baltimore by developing and connecting the region’s civic leaders.

Since 1984, we have annually offered a 9-month experiential civic leadership program. Over 1,773 Baltimoreans have graduated from The Leadership, including many whose names are widely recognizable.

The Leadership is a non-partisan organization that does not take political positions and will not work toward specific policy objectives. We seek to serve as a welcoming, inclusive, and neutral convener.
